Thanks very much Rod. I'll get a local map when I next get to visit Coshocton County, and Keene in particular. From your directions, the cemetery should be easy to find.

Do you happen to know any of the history on Amity Church? I've read some history on the Keene churches, which I find pretty confusing. It appears that the church started as Amity Church (what denomination?), but then in the 1850s merged with the Presbyterian church in Keene (that had been called Millcreek Presbyterian Church) and the surviving church became known as Amity Presbyterian Church. However, the Presbyterian Church in Keene was known as Keene Presbyterian Church before it was merged with the Methodist Church (in the 1950s or 1960s I think). Did the presbyterians continue to worship at the location of Amity Church after it became Amity Presbyterian and then at some point move the location to Keene? All very confusing, but I am interested because my gggrandfather is listed as one of the first elders of Amity Church, and other family members are also listed as founding members.

Do you know what happened to the Amity Church - did it burn down or was it just destroyed with age?

Thanks for any help you can give me.
