Osborne/Ray Cemetery

Located on Rt. 640 on the hill across from the juvenile detention center near Blackford. There are actually two sections to this cemetery, a fenced area that has the Ray family and an unfenced area where the Osborne family is buried. Both sections are grown up, however, the Osborne section was so badly overgrown that not all the stones could be reached. Copied 25 Nov 1998.
