This cemetery is located on an acre of land originally purchased from
the government on June 2, 1831. The original purchaser was Robert
Kerr who bought this acre and 159 more located in the SE 1/4 of
Section 30, in township 22, and range 19, for $200 or $1.25 per acre.
About 10 years later on the 11th of February, 1841, Robert Kerr
made a covenant with the Trustees of the Lutheran and German
Reformed Church of Sharon Township. The Trustees were Samuel
Nazor, John Deardorff, and George Slaybaugh. The agreement was to
be in effect from the 11th of February, "one thousand eight hundred
and forty - one until the 11th of February, one thousand eleven hundred
and forty one, or for a term of 300 years...... For the purpose of erecting
a house of public worship, to be called Frieden Church and for a burying
ground ....connected with said church."
The agreement also stated that the Trustees were to "agree pay to the
said Robert Kerr and to his heirs and assigns, the sum of one dollar to
be paid at the expiration of the term of three hundred years.."
Robert Kerr was born in 1799 in Beaver Co., Pa. His father David Kerr came
to Pa. from Camden, N. J. where he married Cornelia Chamerlain in 1785.
They had a large family, with Robert probably being 8th of at least 11 children.
After purchasing this land in 1831, Robert married Abigail King (a daughter of
John and Eliza King) in 1832 here in Richland County. Robert and Abigail
would also have a large family of at least 13 children. Robert, Abigail and
many of their children are buried in the Oakland Cemetery in Shelby, Ohio.
Two of the three Trustees mentioned above are included in the cemetery
listings below. The third, John George Slaybaugh (Schlebach) was born in 1789
probably in Adams County, Pa. He moved from Adams County, Pa. to Richland
County, c 1834 and remained in the Sharon Twp. area for the rest of his life.
He married Magdalena Starry before moving to Richland County. It is
probable that they had 12 children, most being born in Pa. George and
his wife Magdlena are buried in the Oakland Cemetery.
