Marsh Cemetery, Grove City, Jackson Township, OH

Gravestone Photographs

Located near the top of a hill on the north side of Home Road about one tenth (.1) of a mile west of Gantz Road, this small cemetery has very few stones still standing.  Of course, it's possible that the majority of the graves never had gravestones. According to the sign located about half way up the embankment the cemetery was established in 1853, though there was at least one interment before then, in 1852.  The cemetery is very well cared for.  A quick online search of census records indicates that the Marsh family relocated to Jackson Township from Maryland.
