  Brannock Cemetery
abandoned
Wayne Township, Warren County, Ohio
 

This is an old, abandoned farm cemetery located in a wooded area on private property at the edge of a field on the north side of Elbon Road in Wayne Township.  The Brannock family bought the land back in the 1920s which is considered the source of the name.  The current owner recalls other stones being in the cemetery and says they were stolen many years ago.

Location:  
  • From Corwin Road, go east on Elbon Road, around the curve to the house at 5101 Elbon Road on the right.  Turn left before the mailbox at 5101 Elbon Road and park in the field. You then have to walk through the field and enter the woods directly in the center and go a little ways to get to the bowl shaped area where the cemetery is located.

Variant Names:  
  • A 1955 vintage USGS 7.5 Minute Topographic Map has the location labeled as the Murray Farm Cemetery [incorrectly?] The same map shows the Brannock Cemetery as south of there on the property at 5466 Gard Road which OGS has labeled as Unnamed Wayne Twp Cemetery #12333.. 
    These cemeteries are not identified this way on newer USGS maps and it is thought that it may have been a labeling error on the 1955 map.
