There is a list on-line of those who are buried in the Miami Monthly Meeting Friends Cemetery for the Hicksite cemetery.  There does not seem to be a list for the Orthodox cemetery.  http://www.wilmington.edu/academics/documents/MiamiMonthlyMeetingRecords-Hicksite-1832-1946.pdf

Miami Monthly Meeting (OVYM) Cemetery Records (Hicksite) 1832-1946 - "A Record of Interments in Miami Graveyard."

Center Friends Church

I would like to add a map of the location of the cemetery in this spot.

I found in the archives of the Quaker mail list an explanation from Tom Hamm: 

In many cases until the 20th century, a monthly meeting was made up 
of more than one congregation. In this case, Center MM consisted of 
Center and Chester preparative meetings. Chester Meeting still 
exists in northern Clinton County west of Gurneyville.

Milton had explained to me that Center had been laid down. However the cemetery that adjoined the Center MM still exists.

This same source says:

Some years after the last service was held there, which is believed to have been a centennial celebration in 1926, the building was sold and used as a a place for storage until it was destroyed by fire in 1936.
