Gravestone Photographs

We may never have found this picturesque little cemetery if it hadn't been for a request sent by a former Darbydale resident.  It's tucked away off London-Groveport Road in Battelle-Darby Creek Metro Park.  The cemetery is long and narrow, running up the side of a hill on the banks of Big Darby Creek.  The earliest stone recorded (at an earlier date) was 1834, and there were some that dated into the mid-1980s.

17 February 2010 -- of Omaha, NE sent six photos taken by a relative, John Alfred Schrawger (1899-1994) in 1962. They are copies of Polaroid prints and are a little faded after all these years. I have included Doug's comments with each picture. Go to Schrawger to view the photos. None of the stones were found when we photographed the cemetery in 2001 and I have learned that the remains and stones were moved to Concord Cemetery in Jackson Township. (They have not been photographed by us yet.).
