There is a very old cemetery in Newark, Licking Co., with burials supposedly dating from 1816. Some records from that cemetery have been published in various places and it is usually said that the grave listings, giving name and age and date of death of deceased, was compiled in 1877. Was it compiled by reading the old tombstones in 1877? Does anyone have any experience with the general reliability of those readings or records? Have they been found to be fairly accurate or are there known inaccuracies when compared to other known facts about those buried there? I have been dealing with some Sproul burials recorded there that seem a little hard to reconcile with other known data, but may or may not be accurate?
