Location

Description

This is an old rural cemetery which has been neglected but one grave has been maintained by the DAR. The maintained grave is of Lewis Boyer, a body guard of George Washington.

Other Problems

I was told this cemetery is being used for cult meetings.

Previous Contacts

I haven't contacted anyone because I didn't know who to contact. I was told the DAR is familiar with the condition of this cemetery so I was satisfied the DAR would take some action to save it. I guess I was wrong.

Current Status

I don't know because I only return to Ohio once a year.
