Leavell History and Cemetery


*Pleasant Cemetery - Take Rt. 56 from Mt. Sterling to London. Turn right on Cemetery Rd. From Columbus, take Rt. 62 to Era and at the point of Era Rd. stay to the right, go through Era, cross the Pickaway Co. line. It will then sit to the right of the road.
*Era Cemetery - Take Rt. 62 to Era. The cemetery lies in the heart of Era.
*Methodist Church Cemetery - Sits on church property on S. London St. (Rt. 56) in Mt. Sterling.

*Baldwin Cemetery - Take Rt. 62 south from Mt. Sterling to Cook-Yankeetown Rd. Turn right on the first county road to the right or the first intersection south of Mt. Sterling. Baldwin is located just at the Fayette/Madison Co. line. It's on the left side of the road across a footbridge.

*Messmore Cemetery - No longer exists. Stones and remains moved to New Holland, OH Cemetery.
The cemetery offerings are based on stone readings, cemetery records and information donated by family members of the deceased individuals. Biographical information came from family members and the following books: The History of Madison County 1883 & 1915, The History of Fayette County 1883 and Portrait and Biographical Record of Fayette, Pickaway and Madison Counties 1892. The volumes were graciously loaned by the Mt. Sterling Public Library. Without their support and dedication to local history this project could not have been done.
Thanks go to those who allowed me to enter private property for readings: Dr. Fred Brown, Mr. John Brown, Mr. & Mrs. Gary Scott and Mr. Gerald Baynes. Thanks also to Mr. Denny Morris and Mr. Jim Stiverson for their assistance on reading the stones and the Board of Trustees of the Pleasant Cemetery and the employees for their help. Thanks, too, to Mr. Steve Cooper whose patience with my files knew no bounds.
"That which is alive hath known death and that which is dead yet can never die, for in the Circle of the Spirit, life is naught and death is naught. Yea, all things live for ever, though at times they sleep and are forgotten."--Haggard
This project is in memory of my father
