"Show me your cemeteries, and I will tell you what kind of people you have."
Reflecting on this adage, and the people that are buried in O'Dell Cemetery and Mt. Hope Cemetery, we can honestly say that the people that established Mundy Township were hard working and of good character.
O'Dell Cemetery and Mt. Hope Cemetery were both established in 1836, according to the records that we have today, which are minimal, due to the lack of care from years before. We are happy to state that we are in the process of restoring both cemeteries, although, not to the original state, but, repairing the headstones, bringing documentation up to date, memorializing Veteran's, and maintaining the foliage.
A Cemetery Committee has been formed to augment the restoration activities. They have been busy with Mt. Hope for the last year and will begin work on O'Dell Cemetery, this Spring. Headstones will continued to be repaired, families researched and special care for the Veteran's that served, reaching back to The War of 1812.
We frequently receive calls from genealogists inquiring about their deceased family's whereabouts. The Cemetery Committee is in the process of compiling a list of people that we believe to be buried in both of our cemeteries and a map that will list the location of the graves, with grave markers.
