Mt. Olive Cemetery
Off Park Place Road, Franklin Township
N38˚  49.440   W084˚   04.494

Directions:  Take St. Rt. 52 out of Cincinnati towards New Richmond.  Continue east to Chilo. 
Turn left on St. Rt. 222.  At the St. Rt. 133 junction turn right.  First road on left is Franklin Road. 
Turn here.  Continue as it extends into Love Road.  Stay on Love Road until you can turn right on
Park Place.  Do not turn down Penny Road. I parked along the road before the first house on the
right.  You will want to enter the cut pathway before the house on the right and continue walking
back into the field.  Stay close on the left and walk along the edge of the woods.  You will see an
opening where four wheelers or tractors enter the woods on the left.  Take this pathway and you
will see the cemetery in the woods to the left – green ground cover.

Cemetery photos and additional inscriptions recorded by Pamela Smith, CCGS member
and Craig Schultz, volunteer in September 2010.  Craig Schultz was kind enough to help
me one Sunday find the cemetery and then worked so very hard all day.  Craig pulled and
dug and dug and pulled.  So many stones were buried.  So many were very old and in great
shape.  This cemetery has not been vandalized but you can tell trees have fallen and damaged
some of the stones.  Also, we were unable to find many that were seen previously in one area,
so this tells me that maybe we missed a certain section.  It was a wonderful, enjoyable day
and I am so glad that Craig helped me as this was definitely a hard one to clear.
