Franklin County, Ohio Cemetery Photos &etc.

St. John Lutheran Cemetery, also known as Horch Cemetery, is located on the east side of Avery Road about a half mile north of Rings Road and a half mile south of Ohio 161 in Washington Township on the west side of Dublin.  The cemetery is located on land that originally beloged to Jacob Horch.  Some of the oldest grave stones are gone and some seem to have been replaced by newer ones.  The rows in this cemetery run north to south and most gravestones face west.  Row one is the row nearest Avery Road.  Several of the inscriptions are in German.  Aerial view of cemetery (Spring 2004).
