  3. Amanda Cemetery (Trenton, OH) "is located in Lemon Twp. between St.Rt.4 and Woodside Blvd. on a little island of land, between Lafayette St. and Oxford State Rd./Rt.73. Across Rt.4 would be Douglas Park and right next to the cemetery is Boulevard Florist and part of ARMCO/AK Steel. Woodside Blvd. runs alongside Woodside Cemetery and was at one time the Miami-Erie Canal bed, which is marked by an historical marker. Some believe in the Little Prairie Baptist Church of 1801 was near where the present cemetery is located. I just don't have any history or record of the graves in that cemetery. Many have called it a Potter's cemetery over the years, but I don't know if that is true or not." -Larry Helton, spoors@fairpoint.net

    Chuppi writes (November, 2004)
    "I have been attempting to get Liberty Township's, Woodmansee Sugar Valley Cemetery restored/preserved. I have been working with the Woodmansee family and Griffis families locally and out of state. I am not the motivator of people or resources so only grunt work like mapping and inventorying has been done. As a result of my involvement I ended up working with CHAPS, Citzens for Historic and Preservation Services, to create a Cemetery Workshop. I am trying to pass on information to get Butler County Citizens interested and informed about local cemeteries.

    Abandoned LIBERTY TWP Cemetery report by Joan E. Griffis, Apr 26 1999
    Among the places I recently visited in Butler Co. is the small, now abandoned cemetery in Township three. That's the Liberty Township. The cemetery is on what was originally WOODMANSEE land. Unless you knew about the cemetery you'd never find it as it is located well back from any road and in the middle of a soy bean field.

    The cemetery is in a terrible state of repair and as far as I know, no one from my family has visited it since 1970 or thereabouts. Five or six of my earliest GRIFFIS ancestors are buried in the cemetery along with other families including MILLER, a William ANDERSON and several WOODMANSEE folks. Trees grow up through the graves, stones are down and some are broken.

    The Liberty Township trustees say it is a "private" cemetery and they will not assume responibility for its upkeep. At this point we'd like to learn who does have responsibility for it. We know that the farm owner probably doesn't and we have heard that no taxes are assessed for the land on which it rests.

    In no way do I wish to assign blame to the owner of the land where this small cemetery is located. In many ways he has helped protect it by keeping his farm animals away and by not planting his crops in the cemetery itself. For this I am personally very grateful.

    Now, you can imagine how frustrating it is to live over a thousand miles away, and to not have much knowledge of Ohio law as it regards cemeteries. I do have a growing database of information thanks to the Cemetery Comm. of the Ohio Genealogical Society.

    We've also had assistance from the Butler County Genealogical Society, the Butler Co. Historical Society and the Ohio SAR. I have a letter out to the Butler County Land Records Office in hopes that they can tell us who does have responsiblity for that cemetery.

    Now we've got to find some Woodmansee descendants as it appears they might hold a key to its preservation. I am willing to help fund the cleanup and have even said I'd go back to Ohio to work on the project if we can get it organized.
