Miami Cemetery Tombstone Photos, Wayne Twp, Warren County, Ohio

For his Eagle Scout project, Caleb Coburn of Springboro, volunteered to assist the Warren County Genealogical Society with their efforts to create a digital archive of all extant tombstones in Warren County. Caleb worked in Miami Cemetery in Corwin, photographing over 1000 tombstones and making individual file cards for the tombstones which will be added to the Society card file. His work will be incorporated into a future 2nd edition to Warren County Cemetery Records, Volume 8.

Thanks to Calebís efforts (and that of others) we now have 1,553 photographs of tombstones at Miami Cemetery. This includes all extant tombstones in Sections A through D, Section Y and the Veteranís Memorial Section, representing roughly 20% of the total burials in the Miami Cemetery. The following burials were listed in Volume 8 but no stone was found for them at this time. If you have a photo of these tombstones, please consider sharing them with us.

John W. Brackney, died 1891, Section B
Cassie G. Collett, died 1962, Section B
Jeannette Evans, [no dates], Section A
Christina Parsons, died 1973, Section D
John Shanahan, [no dates], Section D
Henry Sherwood, died 1898, Section A
Malinda H. Sherwood, died 1914, Section A
A. Smith, [no dates], Section B
Hattie Thompson, died 1925, Section D

Thousands of other photos have already been taken and will be put on line as time permits. Our thanks to the many many volunteers who have assisted with this project.
