ARY MAHALA "POLLY" MUNS:

Jarvis Cemetery

An article written by an Eleanor Martin of the Daughters of the American
Revolution, States the following.(an excerpt) :
In Decatur Township, Washington County, Ohio on the farm formerly owned by George Peter Jarvis and handed down to John Jarvis, lies a cemetery. It is out of sight from the road, lying on a rock strewn hill. It has been fenced and cleaned through the efforts, of my father, Charles Mingus,my sons,Mike Steve and Mark and the Decatur Township trustees. Mrs. Martin goes on to name the graves and to give an account of each persons history. The one of interest to Conant descendants is.
Fourth row:
1. Mary "Polly" Conant
2. Jeremiah Conant

Fourth row
1. Mary "Polly" Munn was the daughter of Frances Munn (Muns) and his wife Sally Wickham. Polly was born in 1809 in Rome Township,Athens County, Ohio. Her father was a Revolutionary soldier as well as her grandfather, Joseph Wickham(Wickingham).In December 6, 1829 she married Jeremiah Conant. She died Jan. 28, 1895 of La Grippe.

2. Jeremiah Conant was born in Herkimer County, New York. He came as a young man with his father, Jeremiah, to the Ohio Country. He was born in 1810. He is a direct descendant of Roger Conant, leader in the colony of Mass. On his tombstone is written.

"A precious one from us has gone
A voice we loved is stilled,
A place is vacant in our home
That never can be filled."

Not too distant from the Jarvis cemetery is the Wetheral cemetery. the following reading was made several years ago. It lies on the former Marion Wetheral Farm in Washington County. The cemetery itself is very near the Washington - Athens County line. It used to be considered in Athens County but today it is in Washington County. It is on a steep hillside, the ground above has slipped very badly. It has deteriorated since my last visit three years ago. The important fact about this little plot is that it is the resting place of Frances Munn, revolutionary
soldier. His grave today is unmarked but has been commemorated by a bronze plaque on the corner of the courthouse in Athens, Ohio.
