Cemetery History

This "farm" cemetery contains two known gravestones: one for a Philip Stump; the other for the child Johnson Stiles.  Previous readings mention a field stone marking an additional grave.  It is not known if other burials were made at this location. On the 1867 Warren County Ohio Map, this cemetery is in the far east corner of a 200 acre parcel owned by M. Soth. The farming lane you enter to get to the cemetery is directly across from Long Spurling Rd. before it shifts.  The cemetery is located in a overgrown wooded area close to the farming field on the right side not far from the land.  From the tombstone you can see a red house directly across the wooded area.

The photo can be viewed at the Warren County OHGenWeb Project and their efforts will be incorporated into the new cemetery books planned by the society.
