Gravestone Photographs

Formerly known as Newton Cemetery, named for the village of Newton. When the name of the village was changed to Raymond the cemetery was also renamed. According to Beers 1883 History of Union County, Ohio, part 5, pages 398-399, the cemetery was "set apart for burial purposes about 1850-51, from the farm of David Paul and first received the bodies of Lyman Bodkin and a son of Solomon Cook. . ." In about 1882 the township trustees took control of the cemetery and its care.

Not too long ago a Veterans' Memorial to honor "All Veterans of All Wars" was built in the southeast corner of the cemetery.

If you have ancestors/family buried here and would like to recieve full size photos to Leona. Please mention the name of the cemetery along with the name(s) of interest.

NOTE: Items that are underlined in black are the Webmaster's "best guess." Items found in brackets ( [ ] ) are either documented, i.e. death certificates, or were found in the published records. There are nearly fifty photos of "Unknown" gravestones and foundations; taken out of context (as they are) they mean little or nothing. However, they do help illustrate how many people have been laid to rest in this cemetery.
