This is an active cemetery [ODRE #9821598-T] owned and operated by the Harlan Township Trustees. I do not known when the cemetery was first established but evidence of its existance can be seen on both the 1856 and 1867 Wall Maps of Warren County. The 1867 Map shows a Universalist Church located across the road from the cemetery to the west and perhaps it was originally a church cemetery. Beers History of Warren County does not appear to make any mention of the cemetery but in a passage regarding religious societies in Harlan Twp on page 679 it says
"Other denominations have been organized, and held services in the township, among them the Presbyterian and Universalist churches, but they never succeeded in establishing a permanent society."

Portions of Warner's 1867 Wall Map of Warren County centered on Military Survey #6328. Edwardsville cemetery is at the end of what is now Kunker Road coming down from Osceola on the south side of what is now Edwardsville Road (CR 196). The village of Edwardsville is not identified as such on the map but it would be at the next intersection northeast with Middleboro Road (CR 45) where a school is shown. Note that if you continue northeast on Edwardsville Road, a Presbyterian Church and Cemetery is shown just before you get to what is now Fisher Road heading north.  by
