Locust Grove Cemetery

The cemetery was read and documented by Jeffrey A. Mills in the early 1980's
and contains all grave inscriptions visible at that time.

The grave inscription readings have now been stored in a searchable database at this site
to make finding your ancestors easier.

Please note: Typically, if a stone was completely unreadable I entered the word (illegible). I also put in
comments made obvious by the location of the stone in parentheses; ie: (wife of John Doe) - because sh
was on the same marker, for example, and just listed as wife - it was clear whose wife she was. Further,
if I thought I could make it out, or any part of it was difficult to read and I tried to decipher it, I placed those entries
in square brackets; ie: [SMITH], or [12] JUN 1902.

The main entrance of Locust Grove Cemetery comes in from Route 82 in Twinsburg, Ohio, several hundered feet West
of the Town Square and on the opposite side of Route 82 from the square; you may miss it if you don't watch carefully.
It is accessed via a long driveway past the Cemetery Crypt on the left. At the actual entrance to the cemetery, at the end
of the driveway, the driver is facing South at the NE Corner of Section 2; or the upper right of the following map.

The cemetery is laid out in 8 Sections.

The Grave Numbering in Sections 1-4 seems to have been the original plot numbering used at the Cemetery,
which incorporated only Sections 1 - 4. Because of this, Grave Numbers run North to South and start in Section 2
(these numbers are from an old burial map stored with the City of Twinsburg). As I read the cemetery, I thought of each
grave number in Sections 1-4 as a Family Plot. The burials within each Grave most usually contained all
members of a distinct family group.

The Graves are laid out much differently in the remaining Sections 5-8; though they still are orderly, they were not ordered
the same as the first four sections (Again, the grave numbers are from the same map stored with the City of Twinsburg).
If you are searching for graves in Sections 5-8 you will find them easily once you orient yourself to the layout of that area.

There is a clear and distinct break in the layout of the plots making up Section 1-4 and Section 5-8, visible to the naked eye,
as you stand and look across the cemetery which will allow you to identify these sections easily.
