The spreadsheet of 100+ graves was completed by: Margaret Folston

Photos I took here are taken in the rain hope to return there on a nicer day! Contact person for this township is Troy Kear. He is a Richland Township trustee; township trustees evidently handle the records for the cemeteries in their area. The Richland Township Clerk's address is P.O. Box 246, Wharton, Ohio


Interested in a photo from this place? drop me a line!

From Mike Wheeler, a Richland trustee: At the Spoon Cemetery, about 20 years ago, a burial did take place.  The family could produce the deed for the lot, so there was no problem.  The Wharton-Richland Cemetery is the only one in our township that is open for new lot purchases.   The markers are still in place in the old cemeteries so if someone produces a lot deed, they can proceed with a burial, but we technically term them as closed cemeteries, much like many of the other ones in our county. In my 25 years around Richland Township books and papers, we have never had any information about the cemeteries of legal nature.  I asked a previous official about it and he never had any knowledge of them.  We use what the D.A.R. assembled many years ago as our reference
