Additional information found on Augspurger Cemetery on Sycamore Rd. from History of the Mennonites of Butler County, Ohio, by Rev. W. H. Grubb 1916.

-Cemeteries: The fourth, which is known as the Augspurger Cemetery, is located about a mile southeast of Trenton.  It is little more than a half acre plot deeded to the Augspurger congregation by Rev. Jacob Augspurger about 1830.  There are about one hundred graves in the cemetery and it is enclosed with a durable fence.  It is still used by some families and kept in condition by Albert Augspurger.  
 
-Rev. Joseph Meyer: Joseph Meyer was born in Belfort, France, in the year 1812.  In 1828 he came to America and settled in Butler County, where he united with the Augspurger congregation and was later elected one of its ministers.  He was married to Mary Augspurger.  He died December 24, 1886, and is buried in the Augspurger Cemetery.
 
-Rev. Nicholas Augspurger: Nicholas Augspurger, son of Rev. Jacob and Mary Augspurger, was born in Alsace, France, August 11, 1811, and with his parents came to America and settled in Butler County, Ohio, in 1819.  He united in marriage with Magdalena Gautsche, March 6, 1835.  In youth he united with the Augspurger congregation, and was elected to the full ministry in 1847.  He was especially gifted and was regarded as a leader in the church.  During his ministry he performed 78 marriage ceremonies, baptized 140 persons, and conducted 70 funerals.  He died April 8, 1872, aged 60 years, 7 months, and 28 days, and he is buried in the Augspurger Cemetery.
 
-Rev. Joseph Augspurger, 4th: Joseph Augspurger, son of Rev. Jacob and Maria Augspurger, was born in Alsace, France, May 19, 1818, and with his parents came to America in 1819.  He united in marriage with Elizabeth Augspurger, October 12, 1837, and the second time to Jacobina Roth, October 12, 1858, and again the third time to Jacobina Rupp on April 7, 1885.  He was elected a minister in the Augspurger congregation in the year 1872.  He died April 10, 1887, and is buried in the Augspurger Cemetery.

Calypso,
     Not yet.  No responses from anyone.  Doesn't appear that anyone remember or knows of it.  There was a chapel there on the old maps.  I have a longitude and latitude for the cemetery.  A friend and I are going to use a GPS to locate the coordinates.  If it was there in the field at Thomas and Brown's Run, then those graves have been plowed and planted over for years.  If the graves are up in the woods - what happened to the stones/field stones, that no one has come up on them?  Or was there never a cemetery there, just the chapel?

This one is gone.  It was relandscaped and a house built there.  (Wow _I_ would not want to live there!).  The gravestones used to be piled by a tree on the property but not sure where they are now.  However I do remember where this cemetery was if you want to find it.

Mr. Helton: My husband recently spoke with a man regarding the Browns Run cemetery that you were having trouble locating.  The man lived in a house at the foot of the hill 40-50 years ago, and remembers an old cemetery up on top of the hill.  He described it as a really old, Civil War-type cemetery.  His house is no longer there, but I bet the cemetery is still up there somewhere.  One of the houses is for sale right now...it might give you the opportunity to look around.

DoSteph: I think I already had told you about the Sunbury Cemetery being restored and behind a privacy fence on Eby Rd., with a sign for the Sunbury School site there as well.
 
Calypso: Yes, that man is my friend, Rick, that lives at the corner of Thomas and Brown's Run Rds.  Thanks for the added information, that will help in our search.

Thanks Larry, I'll look for it.  Who's Rick? 
The other family who might know of something up there would be the Laceys.  I'll ask next time I see Joe Lacey - his property is at the bridge of Browns' Run Hetzler and includes that one spring; his brother's property is farther on up Browns' Run.  They grew up there.  We'll find that cemetery one of these days!

Larry:  I don't think it was he who my husband spoke with.  It was someone who lived at the base of the hill on west side of Brown's Run--when he was a child.  He spoke with him again the other day (since I've been so interested in this), and the guy said there was an elderly couple who lived in a house slightly to the south of his.  They had found metal Civil-War plaques marking graves somewhere on top of the hill.  The man (then a child) took them to school for show-and-tell, and gave them back to the couple.  This was 50 years ago probably, and the couple was old then.  I don't think this man actually saw the cemetery himself.

Thanks for the additional information.  We plan to search when the leaves are all down.  Rick must've been talking to someone else over your way.

February 15, 1911, Wednesday, Middletown News-Signal, Middletown, Ohio, Miltonville News
A little son of Charles Krug, of Seven Mile was buried here Wednesday last.
 
The last name of Krug is not in the records for the Miltonville Cemetery; perhaps an unmarked infant grave.

Huff-Dine Cemetery, recorded by J. Larry Helton, Jr., Madison Twp., October 26, 2005
 
I was able to visit the Huff / Dine Cemetery a few days ago. Here is the information I recorded there.

Located at rear of property (13 acres), in a wooded and brushy area, presently owned by Steve Cook, 4626 Mosiman Rd., Madison Twp., Butler County, Ohio.

- complete, white, sandstone marker, leaning on tree: Catherine, wife of Issac Huff, died Feb. 19, 1823, aged 59 yrs. 1 mos. 29 ds.
- incomplete, broken, white, sandstone marker, lying flat: Rachel, wife of John Dine, died ??, 12, 186?
- stone marker next to one above, primitive carving, upright: Rachel Dine.
- broken, white, sandstone marker, faced down: unreadable.
- small, white, sandstone marker, resembling a foot stone, leaning on tree: no markings.
- several field stones, some upright, some scattered.
. several sunken areas.

There was no readable stone for Issac Huff. Past references give information taken from his stone.
