Notes and photos submitted by Kate Maynard, 2008

Scioto Cemetery in Scioto County, Ohio, is located several miles north of Lucasville at the intersection of Cockrell's Run and Caldwell Roads. The old and new (1941) sections of the cemetery are fairly well defined.

The surrounding area is one of rolling hills dotted with wooded areas and farms. Here you will find the graves of Eli Nathan Gilliland, wife Sarah Lavina (Bailey) Gilliland, and three of their small children -- Nancy E., Zurie, and an infant son.
