This online index only lists the individual, death date (if known) and reference page. We are creating a master index of everyone who is buried in this county and their burial location to aid researchers. We are especially in need of people buried here who have no stones or whose stones no longer exist. If you have any of this information or if you have additional information for anyone who is buried in this cemetery, please email the Warren County Genealogical Society.

 

Cemetery Description

Cemetery Name

Schnorf Farm

Variant Name(s) Snuff Family, Bunnel Farm

There are two schools of thought. One feels that the Bunnel Farm Cemetery is the same as the Schnorf Farm Cemetery while other feel that the Bunnel Farm Cemetery is at another location. We'll present what we know and let the reader decide for themselves

  • The1999 "Index to Cemeteries of Warren County, Ohio" by the DAR and the Warren County Historical Society indicate that the Bunnel Farm Cemetery is "SW of Red Lion on SR 741" and does not list a Schnorf Farm Cemetery. This could be a general description of the location of the Schnorf Farm Cemetery.
  • "Ohio Cemeteries 1803-2003" by the Ohio Genealogical Society has cemetery #12297 identified as the Bunnel Farm Cemetery located in S19 T3 R4 at coordinates 39 28' 11.23"N, 84 16' 34.03"W. This would place place the cemetery roughly a mile SSW of the Schnorf Farm Cemetery on the west side of Shaker road just south of the line between section 19 and section 20. A TopoZone map for these coordinates is marked with the word "grave". The Ohio Genealogical Society publication does not list the Schnorf Farm Cemetery.
  • At the time of the depression era "Veterans Grave Registration Project" by the WPA, a Bunnel family were tenant farmers on the property where the Schnorf Farm Cemetery is located.
    John Walker writes, "The WPA found our cemetery in 1939,the Bunnels were living there then, the Bunnel cemetery map shows it as being where the Schnorf farm was one mile south of Red Lion on 741,so it was recorded as the Bunnel cem., but the real Bunnell cem. is approx.1/4 mile to the west/ southwest. The WPA has it all mixed up and now we have to undo all the damage somehow."

Cemetery History

Some sources have this cemetery listed as the Bunnel Farm Cemetery. Originally it was known as the Schnorf Farm Burying Grounds.  At the time of the WPA indexing the Bunnel Family was living at this location and thus it was listed as the Bunnel Farm Cemetery.  Revolutionary War veteran Jacob Schnorf is buried here.
