Bill,
I drove down to the cemetery this past weekend (thanks for the loction!) I was unable to find either Prudence Chilcot - England or any other England's buried there. A man came out of a nearby house he said he was in his 60's and both he and his 80 year old parents have always lived nearby. He said years ago the cemetery was a gathering place for the youths of nearby Fostoria Ohio, and he said many of the stones were stolen or vandalized. I saw the evidence with stones half buried in the fence rows and a stack of damaged stones piled against a tree stump. I looked at all of them that I could handle, but some were either too large and heavy, or were partially buried.
Can you tell me if this cemetery was cataloged in the past? ( hopefully before all of the vandalism ) if so, where could I find a copy of the documentation?
Any Help would be greatly appreciated.
