Lunch and a Cemetery at the Parker Cemetery

Lunch today was leftover spaghetti and water.  I have got to get a better menu!  I’m listening to The Tools: 5 Tools to Help You Find Courage, Creativity, and Willpower–and Inspire You to Live Life in Forward Motion by Phil Stutz and Barry Michelsbut I shouldfenced in area be listening to Stephen King because the Parker Cemetery looks like something out of one of his books.

Although the fenced in area at the front of the cemetery was obviously neglected for several years, I loved it.  To me, this is what gives a cemetery character.  I know it is better when the stones and fencing are repaired and look nice, but this is the picture I have in my head next to the word cemetery.

The latitude and longitude are Latitude 40.644308, -81.745248

It is on township road 656.  You can get there from CR 241.   Turn at the Country Corners Greenhouse and go about 1.5 miles to find the cemetery.  Although it is a public cemetery, it is next to a house, so you might want to let the people in the house know that you are visiting the cemetery.  There is no parking area; you will have to park on the side of the road.  The cemetery is on a slight hill, and there are no paths.  Bring boots if it is a wet day.

Here are the listings on Find a Grave.
