Methodist Church, Fallsbury Twp., 1866-1875
Posted by: Bill Martin (ID *****6076) Date: February 15, 2008 at 16:15:40

On the 1866 & 1875 "Atlas of Licking County, Ohio", maps of Fallsbury Township are shown a Methodist Episcopal Church [a notation "M.E. Church" is shown].

It is about in the middle of Section 18, Range 10, Township 4.

More specifically, it is shown at the Southeast corner of the intersection of McKee Hill Road [Twp. Road 228] and Ohio Highway 586.

The ground for the church is in the Northwest corner of an 80+160 = 240 acre farm owned by J.W. Dunn. Other research shows him to be John W. Dunn. It is highly possible that John Dunn donated the land from his farm as a site for this church.

Do any records of that church still exist? If so, where might I find them?

Was there a cemetery associated with the church? If so, have any gravestones been discovered and transcribed?

I've studied the booklet "Cemeteries of Fallsbury and Perry Townships, Licking County, Ohio" published by the Licking County Genealogical Society in 1998. I did not find a cemetery mentioned at this location in Section 18.

"Ohio Cemeteries" did not list it either.

Thank you for your help.
