I have seen the Ephesus Cemetery listed in various genealogical data as being in Nevada Co. but also Hempstead Co. Can anyone there clarify for me which county Ephesus Cemetery is in or direct me to a contact who can? Thanks. [Administrator's Note: Mt. Ephesus in Nevada County is located on Highway 67 north of Emmet. Emmet stradles the Nevada / Hempstead line.]
