East York Cemetery is nestled in a curve on Miller Road (County 307) east of State Route 31 and is surrounded by lush farmland on three sides. The cemetery is all that is left of the site on the first Presbyterian church located in York Township. According to the Beer's 1883 History of Union County, Ohio, part V, page 533-534, the church was located on the Joseph Miller survey. "The congregation was organized at the house of Beriah P. Wilkins, Novemeber 9, 1839." For several years the congregation met at the homes of various members including, Joseph Miller, Beriah Wilkins and James McCrea (all of whom are buried in the cemetery); meetings were later "transferred to the Miller Schoolhouse." The first church building located on this site was dedicated in February 1855. A second building was erected and dedicated in 1882.
