Shiloh Cemetery lies across the road from the site of the Methodist Episcopal
Church of that same name. The church house "was erected in 1854 or 1855 on land
obtained from Elias Lyon. He and his wife Nancy McVicker were charter members of
this church." The building has been removed from its original site and only the
foundation stones and cement steps give evidence of the once thriving church. Elias
Lyon is said to have killed the last deer in Jefferson Township.
Michael Pugh came to Jefferson Township in 1834 and located in Sect. 13, he
made a gift of three acres for this cemetery. He was a member of the Methodist
Protestant church but his wife Elizabeth Caudy Pugh was a charter member of the Shiloh
Methodist Episcopal Church.
This cemetery is two and a half miles south of Upland and a half mile east. It is a
beautiful, well kept place and is in present day use. The earliest date is on that of Mary
S. McHenry age 17-Feb. 15, 1841.

The above was written by the DAR in the 1940's.
