This cemetery is located just outside and on a hilltop behind Dexter, Section 5, Meigs Twp., Ohio. To get to this cemetery as you go out of Dexter going north on County Road 10, you will make a hard right and go up a gravel driveway. The cemetery is located on the property of Clarence & Delores Evans. Once you have arrived at the house (stop and let them know you would like to drive up to the cemetery) look off to the west (left) of the house and you will see fields, a tree line with an opening to drive through and see the cemetery. It was well kept, mowed and trimmed, when I was there. You can drive to the cemetey but be very careful once you get near the cemetery because you are driving right along the side of the hilltop and if the grass is wet, it can be very slippery. The following is a report containing readings and photographs of the entire cemetery, as of June 26, 2001.
