Batton Cemetery - Springhill Twp.

Contributed by Mouraine R. Baker

Thomas Batton settled in Springhill Township, Fayette Co.in 1768. The cemetery was either on his land in Springhill twp. or close by. The cemetery was removed somewhere - I haven't been able to find out where - in order to put a road through. The lack of documentation on the property makes dates difficult, although it was in the hands of the Batton family until at least 1900.

These are the people I assume were buried there: Thomas Batton June 15, 1717 to 1785. His wife Hannah Coburn likely 1724 and died before her husband. Their daughter Lydia who was single, their son Thomas born by 1755, died 1820, Thomas's wife Sarah, and a few others, such as children who died young. Also buried there should be, Thomas's son John H. and his wife Susannah.
