Monument - First Church in Logan County - 2010

Shirley Penhorwood

The location of the First Church 1805 monument seems to have changed to a place of honor nearer the road, as shown in this photo, taken in 2010 by Shirley Penhorwood. It now stands near several gravestones placed in honor of veterans of our country's early wars. The main portion of the Darby Creek Cemetery (also known as Curl Cemetery) is located at the top of the hill behind the monument. In 1947 the Logan County Historical Society erected a historical marker commemorating the site.
The stone and DAR plaque honoring the two veterans of the Revolutionary War has been moved to Garwood Cemetery in neighboring Zane Township.
