The most recent burial seems to have occurred in 1899. A short obituary regarding this burial can be found in the Newark Daily Advocate newspaper on January 11, 1899: "Kirkersville: Mrs. Abraham Frideger formerly of this place and late of Columbus, O., was buried at Parkinson Cemetery on the pike Wednesday morning. She was a sister of Jacob Keckley, of this place."
