Also known as YOUNG CEMETERY, CAMP RUN BURYING GROUND and/or CAMP WAYNE CEMETERY.
This cemetery is located in the southwest quarter of Section 25, Township 7, Range 2; is situated on the east side of Old Trace Road just south of a no-outlet road.

Inscriptions were taken in the spring of 1968 by Mrs. Jay Minnich.


This cemetery was apparently a private family burial ground, as no mention of it is made in the deed records prior to 1862. The land on which it is situated was originally owned by Jacob Shewman and was sold by his heirs to Adam Young.
