SHORT CREEK METHODIST CHURCH CEMETERY -

Typed by Glenna Dillon from an old list found at the Ohio County Library.

Directions provided by Ross Frazier: From Rt. 2, turn onto Short Creek Road, go about 8 miles, turn left when you reach North Fork Road. The Church and Cemetery are about 1/2 mile toward West Liberty. The Creek and road divides just up stream [1/2 mile] from our farm. If you take the South Fork, you end in Clinton on Route 88, the infamous "Cow Path to Culture" [Liberty and Bethany].

The cemetery, still active, is on the church grounds. The church & cemetery were on the Redstone Methodist Church Circuit from 1785.

NOTE: There are more gravestone readings on the Brooke County Historical Society site. SHORT CREEK CEMETERY
