McDaniel's Methodist Cemetery - Henry Township

  This cemetery thought to be destroyed long ago is near the Alex Burke property in the bend on TSC road just off of State highway #3 south of New Castle. When I started doing research on Henry County cemeteries. I came across information that the Methodist Episcopal Church on 25 Mar 1837 set aside land for a cemetery. The Church was started on 28 Dec 1835 and continued until about 1910, Seventy-five years. I knew for a church to be there that long there had to be some burials in there somewhere. After checking with Alex, I started probing around and soon uncovered several stones. I returned a few days later and soon discovered that there were quite a few burials in there. This is a list of some of the stones that I uncovered. I am sure there are several more stones still undiscovered in here, I probed about half of the cemetery.
