Noah Fawley & Sarah Wilkin Fawley

While in Ohio we visited the Mt. Zion Cemetery in Highland County, about 6 miles SW of Hillsboro on the corner of SR-138 and Mt. Zion Road (Township Road 205).
Harold Hiestand Uible in 2012 at the gravestone of his great-grandparents, Noah Fawley (1824-1914) and Sarah Wilkin Fawley (1829-1901).  They were the parents of eight children including Mary Ellen Fawley (1853-1929) who married Ira Franklin Hiestand (1851-1912).  Their youngest daughter, Gladys Hiestand (1892-1993) married Cecil J Uible (1883-1969).

Noah was born in Rockingham County, Virginia on Sept. 28, 1824 and was the oldest of John (1795-1882) and Mary Hawk (1804-1865) Fawley's 12 children.

Sarah was the daughter of Philip (1794-1894) and Mary Ann Polly Roush (1800-1893) Wilkin.  She was born in Hamer Township, Highland County.   She had two sisters – Mary Ann Wilkin Pence (1817-1904) and Catharine Wilkin Pence (1819-1902); and one brother, Philip Wilkin (1816-1889).  The Mt. Zion Cemetery has several other Fawley gravestones and many from the Roush, Pence and Wilkin families also.
