Wilson, Nancy, infant daughter of Samuel & Jean Love Wilson who left Ardstraw, County Tryone, Ireland, in the year 1798 to accompany her parents to the USA, died and was buried at sea at the age of four years.

In some information about the church and Seceder information from this article, it states that James McFadin Clover, infant son of Philip & Sarah Roll Clover was christened "Paul," and the child and parents are buried in Seceder cemetery.  Judge Peter Clover was born in the Brush Run settlement in 1804.

The oldest stone in the cemetery is that of Mary, wife of James Potter, who died 04 Oct 1812 at age of 45 years.  It is well known that there were earlier burials; however, no markers were placed at the burial plots.

From Carol-Jeanne Turk

I have been to Seceder Cemetery many times over the last 30+ years.  I remember my brother and I tramped through the woods near the entrance (I think) and tripped over some headstones near a stream.  Some had fallen over, and others were sinking in the soft, moist ground.  I have searched for this part of the cemetery and have been unsuccessful in locating it again.  It was to the left before going up the steep hill.  I recall going along a very narrow and over-grown path through the woods, and the land opened up into a small, weedy area.  The gravestones were to the far right end of the opening.  Does this sound vaguely familiar to anyone?  Has this area been searched for more, earlier headstones?  I haven't been able to do this myself.  I am not as agile as I used to be and would not be able to traipse through the woods like I did in my early twenties.  Most of the people buried there were ancestors of mine:  Clover, Cochran, Corbett.  Carol-Jeanne Turk, P.
