Counts Cemetery

The OES visited Counts Cemetery on October 18, 2002. Also known as Old Midway Cemetery, Counts Cemetery is located off of State Route 38 in Madison County. Most of the tombstones were in pretty decent shape and many could still be read. The earliest tombstone we could find dated to 1822, belonging to Susan Pancake, so the cemetery was likely established around this time. The majority of the tombstones were from the mid to late 1800s. A few Civil War veterans were buried in the cemetery, which is very common for cemeteries of this age. A single line of broken tombstones lined the rear of the cemetery near a cornfield. The cemetery seemed to be well taken care of during our visit.
