Looking for Farm Cemeteries?

buggypanoWe have many farm cemeteries listed on our site, particularly in Berlin and Walnut Creek townships. Keep in mind, however, that many of these cemeteries were recorded several years ago and may now be part of the landscape.  Also, keep in mind that some of the cemeteries are still on private land.  Many people will allow you to visit the cemeteries, but be respectful of the properties and seek permission before entering.  Most people, I’ve found, will take you to the cemeteries on their land if you are kind and respectful.  If they choose not to, thank them for their time and carry on.

Breakfast and a Cemetery ~ Emerick Farm Cemetery

Emerick Cemetery1The Emerick Farm Cemetery is just down the road from my house.  Since it was an unusually cool August morning, I had warm steel cut oats with walnuts and fresh blueberries from Troyer’s Country Market  and drove north to Killbuck.  I had to wait until I got to SR 62 (read civilization) to get reception for Morning Edition on WKSU.

Township road 54 is east off of SR 60 N.  The longitude and latitude coordinates are 40°, 30′ N, 81° 59′ W.

It is located on George Piar’s property.  You may contact him at grpiar@valkyrie.net

George has made a lovely spot for the people buried in this little cemetery.  You can find pictures of the stones on Find-a-Grave.
