Massie Township Pioneer Cemetery

Please add AKA:
Henpeck Cemetery
Wellman Cemetery

Please replace the current description with this revised description:
This cemetery was moved by the US Army Corps of Engineers to its present location in June and July 1975 when Caesar’s Creek Reservoir was built. It is located on the west side of Oregonia Road next to the house at 8626 Oregonia about 700 feet south of its intersection with Pioneer Village Road (west side) / N. Clarksville Road (east side) and about 2.2 miles south of its intersection with State Route 73. There is a parking area at the side of the road, and the cemetery sits back off the road about 200 feet. People buried here were moved from the now extinct Cemeteries: Lukens Cemetery, First Freewill Cemetery, and Zuroweste Cemetery #2.

The cemetery is located in Massie Township, Warren County, Ohio, and is # 12280 (Henpeck Cemetery / Wellman Cemetery) and may possibly be # 14204 (Massie Township) in “Ohio Cemeteries 1803-2003”, compiled by the Ohio Genealogical Society.
Grailville Cemetery

Please add address:
931 O’Bannonville Road

Please add zip code:

Please add the GPS coordinates:

It is about 1300 feet along the trail from start of the trail on the east side of the Oratory building to the cemetery. The first burial occurred in 1964.

Please merge Freedom Cemetery


Freedom Cemetery

The correct location in is Idaho, not Wyoming.
Bet I'm one of the few who has found an unburied dead person in a cemetery!
