Robert, Accordding to the Book, One Hundred Cemeteries of Harrison Co., Mt. Zion Cemetery is located off state route 62 about 1.5 miles southwest of Oddville. The cemetery is difficult to see during summer due to it is located in wooded area. Travelling southwest from Oddville, across Sycamore Creek and up the hillside from the creek. Take the first drive to the right. Surrounded by a farm fence you can climb over. Many stones are damaged and have fallen over. This book was written by Ford and Nagel. I have not been to this cemetery. The index reads, Robert L. Thompson, born 09 Sept 1802, death 24 Feb 1886 Husband of Emily A. Thompson. Hers reads, Emily A. Thompson born 23 Mar 1813 and death 08 Oct 1859, wife of Robert L. Thompson, stone broken. Hope this helps with your research. Shirley
