      Comment - It has not been determined when or how Jordan Carey acquired the property on which the cemetery is located, but it may have been inherited by his wife. When he died in 1883, he left the 110 acres on which he lived and all his personal property, excepting a life estate of his wife, to his son, William Carey (O. C. Will Book H, p. 332). William mortgaged the land 24 Apr 1888 (O. C. DoT 15:358) and sold the land on 11 Apr 1889 (O. C. DoT 17:252) without exempting the cemetery, by which action the property on which the cemetery stood passed out of the Carey family.

  1. Carey, Jordan   (b. - d. 7 Jul 1883)
      • J. Carey D July the 7, 1883
