"I wish to present my transcriptions of the Pioneer Cemetery, earlier known as the Old Quarter and also Township Cemetery. It is located just north of the Maple Grove Cemetery. There is only a drive seperating the older part, for which this report dwells upon. The old faced stone mausleum still exist, it was restored through community effort in the 1970's. Sorry to report much of the restoration has since been vandalized and again is in need of repair. This cemetery is very old, the earliest burial I found inscribed here being Feb. 1830, and that is consistant with date inscription on corner post of vault "1830". This land first donated and dedicated as cemetery ground by the Alexander Devilbliss family. Additional land was purchased to accomodate the needs of a growing community in 1861. This new area located south of this will be covered in a seperate report under the name Maple Grove Cemetery. As always I have made every effort to correctly read the information inscribed, but due to the deteriated condition of many stones, make no guarantee of being 100% correct. I will be pleased to forward all verified additions or corrections supplied to me. All data within brackets will be my knowledge, information, observations and /or research not inscribed. These findings are as of 17 September, 2000, revised 29 June, 2001, revised 13 March, 2002, revised 3 Aug., 2013

Row 1.
FREEMAN, John H., died Nov. 18, 1865, aged 53years...[stone broken, remaining portion meas. 3"x20" found down at bottom of hill on adjoining property. I carried it back to cem., it actually belongs in new section, unknown location.]
ii. FREEMAN, Unknown given name, daughter of O.P. & _[A], died Aug.14, 1850, aged 9mo & 21d [found this stone fragment at bottom of hill on adjoining property, returned it to cemetery, placed it next to John Freeman's memorial.21d [readings taken before 1912 included a memorial stone for Adaline, wife of O.P. Freeman, d. Oct 27, 1877, ae. 45y 8m 24d this would probably be the parents of this child. I found no sign of Adaline's memorial still existing today, only a broken fragment of the childs stone. I carried both of these memorials back to the cemetery, from a deep ravine on private property behind the cemetery. They actually belong in new section, unknown location.] Lying on a gravel ledge, next to the store building, are two displaced memorial stones. They are still readable, and I found no stone with the parents of these two children, so have no idea of where in the cemetery they belong, so I'm including them with the other stones in this row, by reason of their age, they most likely were originally buried in the Old Pioneer section.

This concludes my readings for the Pioneer Cemetery of St. Albans Twp., Licking Co., Ohio. With the exception of a few stones which were vandalized and thrown over an embankment years ago onto an adjoining property, when I receive permission and assistance (as they are too heavy for me to carry back up the hill alone), will return the remaining stones to their rightful location and amend this document with the additional memorial stone inscriptions.
