Gravestone Photographs

The first burial in Mifflin Township Cemetery was in 1817 and the cemetery is still in use.  The earliest burials were actualy in what was known as the (Old) Gahanna Cemetery.  When a new section was added in 1914 it became known as the Ridenour Cemetery.  The cemetery located at Route 62 and Ridenour Road (on both sides of Ridenour Rd).  Apparently there are no records prior to 1936.  The cemetery and records are maintained by the Mifflin Township Trustees. For information and a map of the cemetery go to http://www.miftwp.org/cemeteries/index.htm.

Most of the photographs on this page were taken in the oldest section of the cemtery.
