Pike Township
Coshocton County, Ohio

Welcome to the virtual West Carlisle Cemetery. We hope to preserve the rich heritage this cemetery holds and to document the weathered stones before they are all illegible. Like any other cemetery, it will take you a while to find your family. We have photographed 2/3 of the old section of the cemetery and are working diligently to upload them onto this site. It is going to take a very long time! We begin in the back of the cemetery (east side) and photograph row by row. The oldest headstones are in this section. When we figure a way to index this site, searching it will be easier. We thought of alphabetizing it, however, order of burial often lends insight to researchers in linking families. Headstones that are badly worn have been cross referenced with information from Coshocton County Ohio Cemeteries Pike Township, Indexed and prepared for publication by the Cemetery Committee, Coshocton Chapter, O.G.S., Virginia Fry Mencer, Chairperson. The work on this site is all original as you will note descrepancies in our work versus the OGS listings. Name spellings, dates and additional headstones vary from their work. We used their work only as a reference and in some cases, to fill in information that has worn away since the 1980's, as it was intended.

We wish to thank the Mikesell family for their hospitality, generousity and love.

This one's for you, Bob!
