Cemetery History

Currently listed in the phone book as the Salem Township Cemetery.  The Morrow Cemetery started as a small cemetery on the Miranda Farm. The first known burial is James Ireland who died in 1819.  In November 1865, The Miranda Burying Grounds were purchased by the I.O.O.F. Morrow lodge and the cemetery became known as the Morrow I.O.O.F. Cemetery. The Salem Township trustees acquired the cemetery in 1897 and it is now known as the Morrow Cemetery.  WCGS has a copy of the interment records in our library.  War of 1812 veteran is Zebulum Jennings.
