There is a cemetery named "Mt. Ephraim Cemetery" located in Aurelius Twp, Lower Salem, Ohio.
Ephraim Gould set up on a corner of his property a church and a cemetery. The church is about two miles above Salem, dates from the earliest time when meetings were held from house to house in the neighborhood; and in the absence of any regular preacher, the farmers took turns at reading discourses from a book of Erskine's sermons.
In 1846 the little association felt able to afford a building which was erected on land given by Ephraim Gould. In 1873 the present building was finished, and the old one is now used as a stable near by.
Is it still there? The church was viewed and photographed in 1997 by a cousin of mine. The picture showed it still in fairly good condition. I would like more information about it. So far no luck other than what I have just written.
