Lebanon Cemetery
Lebanon, Warren County, Ohio

Section C, Lots 99, 100, 147, 148
Bigony, Drake Post
The Shaker Lots: Bush, Divine, Fennessey, Jameson, Liddell, McBride, Miner


Twenty-four persons signed the Petition to Close Union Village before it was sold to United Brethren Church. Following are the names of sixteen of those Shakers who were buried in Lebanon Cemetery, because there was no longer any "Shaker Land" available for their burial. Others of the 24 went to Canterbury, or scattered elsewhere. The ownership of the plot is listed as "Shakers, Arthur Bruce Trustee." The place of death on the individual records is listed, variously, as "Shaker Village, Ohio," "Lebanon, Ohio," "Shakertown, Ohio," and "Union Village, Ohio." In all cases, the undertaker is designated as "Oswalds."

also see Union Village and the Shakers of Warren County, Ohio for additional Shaker information that can be found on the Warren County OHGenWeb and elsewhere.

SHAKERS
1805 - 1920

The large SHAKER monument (1805-1920 ) is in the center of a large grassy plot. Lebanon Cemetery records (coordinated with other sources) document that at least sixteen Shakers are buried in Section C, Lots 99, 100, 147 and 148, although portions of 147 and 148 were owned by someone other than the Shakers.

  It was not the practice of the Union Village Shakers to put gravestones on individual graves, instead they often planted cedar trees to mark the spot a person was buried. The single evergreen bush seen in this photograph may have been planted with that in mind. by
