This cemetery is a family plot for the Henry Lamp family with two visible stones (2/2000). The Henry Lamp family can be found in the 1850 Census of Monroe County Ohio and the 1870 and 1880 Census of Pleasants County McKim District. Henry Lamp was first married to Mary Ward (aka Polly) and secondly to Jane Terry (16 July 1874).
