Coordinates: 40.612879, -81.799537

I visited this cemetery on a gorgeous fall day in September.  The leaves were just starting to turn, and there was a slight crispness in the air.  The children in Spring Meadow School were out playing baseball.

Little Chestnut Ridge Cemetery aka Albert Mast Farm Cemetery

Chestnut Ridge Cemetery

Entrance to Chestnut Ridge Cemetery

This is the beautiful entrance to the tiny Chestnut Ridge Cemetery on SR 39.  You could pass by this little cemetery without a single notice if you weren’t looking for it.  It is on a small hill next to a house.  The owners of the house seem to keep this area tended.  I knocked on their door to find out about visiting, but no one answered.  You will need to park in their driveway to get to the cemetery, but the driveway is pretty wide so you should be out of the way.

Here is the Google Map of the cemetery.

The coordinates are 40.546124, -81.748803

The stones can be found on Find a Grave.

Accidental Cemetery~Pleasant Grove

Liberty Gospel ChurchThis cemetery was on my flooded out detour route.  A few weeks ago we got several downpours over a few days that flooded our area.  I live in a valley that floods easily, so I had to take a detour to the library. As I traveled township road 35 in Killbuck, I noticed a little church cemetery by the road.   I kept going because I didn’t want to take pictures in a downpour~I’m crazy but not that crazy.    When I got to the library, I looked up the cemetery location, and our resources indicated that it was the Pleasant Grove Cemetery.

The coordinates for this cemetery are 40.492957, -81.949618

The stone pictures are on Find a Grave.

A majority of the stones in this cemetery rest under the beautiful, cascading pine tree branches~a very peaceful cemetery indeed!KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERA

The coordinates are 40.64946, -81.92389.    Look for the stones on Find a Grave.

Take a cue from the cows next door and reflect and listen to the birds on a beautiful day in June at this quiet cemetery.
