Additional Cemetery Info...

The original house of logs was about two miles east of the present site on North Prong of Dry Creek, and was used for both school and church. Dry Creek Baptist and Shiloh Methodist churches were organized in the old log house during thbe early 1870s or, possibly, earlier. In 1886, the union building, five miles west of Pomona, was erected three- quarters of a mile west of the old log house for the Methodist, General and Missionary Baptist, and Christian denominations. While the organization name is Shiloh (q.v.), the church is generally known as Dry Creek for the stream near. Dry Creek Cemetery, near, and the old log school were also known, during the early days, as Lovan School and Graveyard for Marion Lovan, who came from Kentucky long before the Civil War and entered land.
