thanks so much for the information on the Stroups. I have a history of Skinner Hudson/Hutson and I will check for more Denton info. I found the Denton info in the 1915 Madison County History under Simeon Kilgore.
since you can access the 1875 map I will try and explain where the cemetery is located. I have compared the 1854 and 1875 and the boundries seem the same. The Maxey School is located on the C. C.Hill land on both maps.
On survey 6252 you will see D. Stroup has 83 1/2 acres that ajoins the land of Mrs. A M Colburn ( the former Mrs Peter Buffenbarger). the cemetery is located on/or very near the property line between those two properties. The line near where the numbers 83 1/2 are on the map. So the cemetery wasn's directly behind the school but near by for a reference point.
I found A Phiefer, Peter Slaughter and Cephas Pancake on the map for 1853 as land owners. An interesting note the Pancake house is still standing and is being used as a residence. The widow of Cephas Pancake married Austin Hutson/Hudson the brother of Mrs Buffenbarger. He managed both farms.
I couldn't locate my 1862 map of Paint but will check the copy at the library
The cemetery reference you mention for David Watson and his father is for Paint twp Cemetery located on Old Xenia RD and it is also on the 1875 map.
thanks for all the info and will see what else I can find in my notes.
