I have two death certificates of ancesters who were buried around 1915-1920 in "Lower Middleport". I know of the two Middleport Hill Cemeteries and the Pioneer Cemetery. Does anyone know of others in Middleport? Thanks for any information.

Hi Melissa,
The Cemetery across from Overbrook is the Pioneer Cemetery. I checked it a few weeks ago because it seems to be in lower Middleport.
Thanks for the information.

I used to live in Middleport, still have family there. Plus my mother grow up there. I remember playing at my Aunt house across the street from that cemetery but never knew the name. Aunt lived next door to Overbrook. Now her son lives there. The only other two are Middleport Hill and Riverview. What are the names of your family that are buried at Lower Middleport Cemetery. The cemetery mite of changed names or they mite of removed it and reburied the love ones. Its been a long tie since I been back home down there. I know that town better than the one I live in now. Have you called or visit the Library in Middleport. Phone number is 7409925713 and there is a Meigs Co. Museum there 7409923810.

My relative was buried at the lower end of Middleport where the old brick school house stood. This was during the flood of 1818.
From the Pioneer History of Meigs County it says that
The first school house was built about 1809 on
the ground now occupied by the lower graveyard
in Middleport.
There must have been a graveyard there somewhere, but I'm not sure of the location. If you find out where this was, please let me know

There is a Cemetery in lower Middleport called "Pioneer". There are pictures and listing of stones..this may be what you're looking for. http://ohiogravestones.org/cemetery.php?cemID=315

This Cemetery is located in Middleport, near the Ohio River between a "do-it" center and Overbrook Rest Home. Hope this helps!

The "Lower Middleport Cemetery" is better known as the Pioneer Cemetery or sometimes as Gravel Hill (not to be confused with Gravel Hill Cemetery down the road a few miles at Cheshire).

The Meigs County Pioneer and Historical Society (a.k.a. Meigs County Museum) has this cemetery copied and for sale.

If you need to contact me, do so at Roushhistorian@yahoo.com
