The cemetery is located east of Black Run Road (State Route 156) and south of its intersection with Minney Hill Road. This is south of the community of Knockernstiff about 1.5 miles.
This family cemetery was originally established on the Bartholomew Riehle farm. It is currently on the property of Mr. & Mrs. Everett Kellough, who have carefully maintained the Riehle log cabin and area around the cemetery. This two story cabin and family cemetery are just over the hill to the east, behind the Kellough farm house.
The cemetery is cared for and maintained by the Ross County, Ohio Historical Society and contains the headstones of 39 people. However, some given headstones were not buried here. All persons buried here are related to the Riehles. The last burial in the cemetery was in 1922.
This census was copied from headstones in the fall of 1992 by Mrs. Shirley Ajax and used with permission.
