General Assembly in 1941 to provide proof of birth for persons who were
born prior to 1906 and who needed this information to apply for benefits
under the Social Security Act. The earliest birth record would be 1872.
The people filled out a standard form with lots of wonderful genealogical
information on it. Instructions for obtaining a copy of the certificate
are included in the book. 133 pages/acid free paper/soft cover.

The Mt. Pleasant/Wilson Cemetery was established on the land of the Mt. Pleasant Presbyterian Church on the banks of Little Beaver Creek, one mile east of Darlington. On the first Sabbath of November, 1797 the Presbytery of Ohio sent Rev. Mr. McDonald to conduct services at Mt. Pleasant. William and Leah Wilson sold four acres of land to the Mt. Pleasant Congregation for $5.00. The first recorded burials ("tombstone dates") are THOMAS HARTSHORE, of "Red Hill" Darlington Township who came in 1797 from Cecil County Maryland and died 1800 at age 80 years, and SAMUEL SEMPLE who died November 7, 1804 at age 75 years.
