      Ben Board Cemetery (John House)
      A large marble slab, about four feet high, twenty-two inches wide and two inches thick on which is engraved a spread eagle with sweeping wings bears this legend:

      "Jacob Hyre, born January 1, 1784, died December 18, 1858, aged seventy four years, eleven months."

      Another similar headstone, only more appropriately marked with a weeping willow tree reads:

      "Mary, wife of Jacob Hyre, died April 11, 1859, aged eighty years and five months."

      Jacob Hyre came from Hacker's Creek, Lewis County, to Mill Creek in 1815, settling in a little cabin on the Keenan Farm. After two or three years, he built farther up on yon side of mill Creek from the Jonathan Hyre house. His wife was a Beath before marriage.
