Some Cemetery Inscriptions
Randolph & Butler Townships, Montgomery County, Ohio
Union Township, Miami County, Ohio
The cemetery inscriptions on this page were taken from the publication titled The History of Englewood and Randolph Township, Montgomery County, Ohio by Earl Leon Heck, 1960. These inscriptions in Appendix 3 of the publication were recorded by Earl L. Heck and Ohmer Jackson on the dates given below. In the introduction, Mr. Heck states about Burial Grounds:
"There appears to have been no burial ground in the corporate limits of Englewood. On the northern edge on River Road is the old Pfouts-Menges burial ground previously mentioned. Fairview Cemetery dates from prior to 1829, the earliest record of a burial there being 1829 for Jacob Hess for the above year. The earliest burial in the Concord Cemetery south of the dam is for George Heikes who died Dec. 26, 1837; that is the first one that I have record of."
