Gravestone Photographs

This tiny cemetery is on the west bank of Bokes Creek at the junction of Patrick-Brush Run Rd. and Ford-Reed Road.  Though it is a very small, out-of-the-way cemetery we found two recent burials. This complete photographic inventory of the cemetery was taken on October 18, 2009. It is believed that this cemetery is on land settled by Truxton Ford about 1849. The earliest stone still extant is that of Roanna Ford, wife of Truxton who died September 10, 1859; the most recent stone is that of David N. Baird who died December 20, 2003. This page contains a complete photographic inventory that was made on October 18, 2009.

NOTE: Most items found within brackets are the Webmaster's best guess or were found in Liberty - Paris - Taylor - Washington Townships Cemetery Records, compiled by members of the Union County Chapter Ohio Genealogical Society (Marysville, OH 1986), pages 84-85.
