Located on the north side of State Route 162, just east of State Route 511, this land was conveyed by Luther Blair in 1834 to the inhabitants of Huntington Gore for a burial ground. Luther was paid $1.00 for it. Adeline D. Slayman and Stephen Babcock were buried there in 1835. Contact Gerald Cowie, Sexton, 25320 Gore Orphanage Road, New London, OH 44851, phone: 419-929-8617
