  • Note from Susan Beck:
I am researching the Parsell family and have several in York Street Cemetery. I have photos of 4 stones that you do not have. Do you want me to send them to you? They are Peter Parsell, Martha Parsell, Ralph&Lottie Parsell and Dale&Marjorie Parsell. I have a digital camera and will be going back in the next couple of weeks. I would love to help you with this project. I live in Bucyrus. It is about an hour drive to the cemetery. I will be taking photos of most of the Parsells, VanOrsdalls, Pisels. These are in my family line (Susan has since sent me 68 photos so far)
  • info from Anne Mae Huntley:

    The York Street Cemetery is partly located in Jackson Twp. and partly in Marseilles Twp. Thus it has two caretakers and it is not uncommon to see one part newly groomed and the other part in need of attention.

  • info from Loren Musgrave:

There was a church on SR 294 named YORK STREET. The building is now occupied as a dwelling as the congregation merged with another and built a new church building.

Special note from Julie about the Parsell's:

I'm attaching a photo of me standing at the gravesite of my great grandfather John Parsell. All the Parsells in York Street and Jackson Center Cemeteries are descended from Peter and Martha Vanderbeek Selover Parsell who are buried at York Street. They came to Ohio in 1844 from Cayuga County, NY along with several other families. These families had been members of the Dutch Reformed Church and many were of Dutch descent. But, after 200 years in this country, few of them spoke any Dutch and their ties with Holland consisted mainly of certain values and attitudes. The Dutch brought sleds and ice skates to America. They also had a kindly and helpful acceptance of other peoples.-Julie (Parsell) Baechle Holmdel NJ
