Warren County Genealogical Society volunteers, Darren and Laurie Waters of the Landon area, have photographed all extant tombstones at this small inactive cemetery adjacent to the Salem Twp garages (some of which appear to have been constructed on the cemetery grounds). The grounds are kept cut but many of the stones are in very poor condition. The plat of the cemetery from the WPA Graves Registration Project shows 756 grave sites at the location.
The results of their efforts will be included in a future update of Warren County Cemetery Records Volume 6 <http://www.co.warren.oh.us/genealogy/publications.htm#Cemetery>
Photos of the uncovered stones have been added to the Warren County OHGenWeb project at
Darren and Laurie have photographed 60 of the 67 burials noted in previous readings of this cemetery. If you have photos of any of the missing stones, please consider sharing them with us
Amazingly, 18 of those buried here are known to be Civil War Veterans although not all of them are identified as such. Seven of those on the WPA Graves Registration Project have no tombstones.
Thanks Darren and Laurie!!!
