South side of TR 78 (Cook Rd).  West of CR 35 (Stubbs Mill Rd).  Located on property at 1177 Cook Rd., Lebanon, OH 45036 on the Win Row Farm. To find the cemetery you have to walk out past the horse barn and riding yard to where there are ATV tracks in the ground in a circular pattern.  Go diagonally from the barn to the wooded area.  Walk through the trees down to the creek and cross over it.  Go up the hill until you reach the very top.  There are 4 huge and very old trees that mark the edges of the cemetery.  The cemetery ground is fairly flat and the entrance is marked by a large round rock.  There is a wooden and wire fence surrounding the cemetery but it has fallen down in parts.

Cemetery History

This is Quaker cemetery is for the Samuel and Rebecca Iorns family. The current property owner is a descendant of Samuel Iorns.  The Samuel Iorns family bible page was found in the attic of her home. It listed many birth and death dates for the Iorns / Irons family members. Vicki Bergerhouse & Dana Palmer visited this cemetery in October 2009 and plotted out the head and footstones in the cemetery.  There are 12 definite burials.  One of the unidentified Quaker markers is definitely for a baby or child.  There were 3 large headstones with engraving and 2 or those 3 footstones had initials.  These headstones were completely buried under the ground and covered with mud.  We had to dig them out and clean them up to get a good reading.  Also the number 4 was similarly shaped on all the stones. There are only 3 visible stones for a father and his son with the surname Cook; the rest are field stones for the Iorns family. The cemetery was arranged into 2 rows.  The first row closest to the rock entrance had 5 obvious burials.  The second row had 7.  The owner told me that this family changed the spelling of their surname from Iorns to Irons because people kept confusing Iorns with the surname Jones.   Hannah Iorns (daughter of Samuel & Rebecca Iorns) who died in 1815 according to the bible record is the first known burial in this cemetery.
