This cemetery can be found inside the Dr. Edmund A. Babler Memorial State Park.
The current ownership of the cemetery is Babler State Park. The site is not accepting new burials and hasn't for 100 years. The park has not had the ability to restore this cemetery up to now. They are trying for a grant, and it is my hope this will make it possible for more stones to be uncovered as they are able to restore the site.
Stones were recorded as part of an eagle project to restore the cemetery. I first read the cemetery and then I compared my work with a previous work done by Eva Kozeny, which was also a major source for information.
All of the names mentioned have been found on stones within the cemetery, however, not all of these stones are standing upright in their bases. The stones that are not in a base, but rather lying on the ground in front of, or around the base are listed below:
Some stones were missing from their bases, and a few stones were unreadable, making it quite evident there are more burials here than I was able to find the information for.
I compiled these records on Jul 25, 2004.- Benjamin Dickerhoff
