    Cemetery Inscriptions of Newberry Township in Miami County Ohio
    by Joseph H. Bosserman

    Unused for nearly one hundred years, this old burying ground is uncared for an in a high state of decay. Many stones appear to be missing. It is located on a center line drawn between the two lower halves of section 18, township 9, range 5. It is very near a line drawn between sections 18 and 19. John Cable, an Elder of the German Baptist Church, came to Miami County between 1812 and 1814 and settled in Newberry Township near the site of this cemetery. It was his intention to have a church built on the site, however, this never materialized and the Church was built several miles on up the creek and is now known as the Harris Creek Church of the Brethren. At one time, a road ran from what is now (1979) State Route 48 just north of Covington, westward down to the Stillwater River. This road lay half way between the Covington-Bradford Road and Klinger Road, but it was actually the eastern extension of what is now Klinger Road. This long forgotten road led to a ford on the Stillwater River where it crossed just north of the mouth of Harris Creek. From here it passed the grist mill built by Noah Davenport in 1815 and winding northwest up the valley along the millrace came to the Cable cemetery where it made a right angle and passed north several rods to end on what is now Klinger Road. The cemetery lies high on a bluff overlooking Harris Creek on its south.

    Inscriptions taken on 15 July 1977 by Joseph H. Bosserman and compared against a list taken on 27 April 1975 by Don Bowman.

    From the size of this cemetery, it appears as many as half of the stones could be missing. As most of the stones are down and appear to have been "tossed about" no exact order could be listed. There are several field stones, both standing and down.
