Ailes Cemetery

aka Asay Cemetery

Preble County, Ohio
Israel Township

Source: "Preble County, Ohio Cemetery Inscriptions", 1969

Transcribed by K.T.

This cemetery is also known as Asay Cemetery. It is located in the northwest corner of the northeast quarter of Section 2, Township 6, Range 1. The cemetery is situated in a clump of trees a short distance from the road and can be reached by going through a pasture field. The cemetery is fenced, but the fence is down in several places and cattle have been grazing among the tombstones, resulting in many which are no longer standing, with many broken in several pieces.

Inscriptions were taken in July 1968 by Mrs. Don Short.
