Name Index - Gravestone Photos - General Views & Unidentified Stones

One of the oldest cemeteries in the township. Very few stones still exist. Many have been lost, or are buried. Supposedly, a few were at one time crumbled to make a dam for a farm pond. Henry Null who moved to the areas in 1798 (father of Christian and Charles Null) is among those buried in this cemetery. Also see the [Second] Salem Reformed Church Cemetery

Location:  
  • The cemetery is located on private property behind the house at 5610 Springboro Road (CR 41) on the east side of of the road about 1.2 miles north of Pekin Road (TR 53). Walk past lake to small hill--stones that are still there are over the hill hidden under the tall grass when visited in 2003 & 2004. Be sure to obtain permission from the owners before attempting to visit the cemetery.
