Jarvis-Overton Cemetery
(Credle Rd. (#1124); Swan Quarter Twp.)

All tombstones from this cemetery were photographed by Jan Orndorff in 2010.  Jan's comments on this cemetery: Some stones were lying on the ground across the graves.  Charlotte Jarvis’ tombstone was down over a grave with broken open cement covering over the grave.  The picture doesn’t show that open part very well.  I crawled under the backside of the brush at the end of Charlotte’s grave and found the tombstone of Otto Earl Jones on the ground.  I found all the tombstones that were listed in the “In Memory Of…” book.  As you can see from the overall cemetery pictures, the ditch and farm land are little by little taking more and more of cemetery area.
