|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Amity Cemetery is located on the east side of Gilchrist Road, just south of OH-3, in Amity, Ohio (Pike Township, Knox County). The coordinates are 40° 28' 18" N, 82° 22' 27" W.
Amity Cemetery is still active, the oldest sections of the cemetery are located on the north side. The cemetery is extremely well taken care of, there are very few broken gravestones.
Amity Cemetery is the final resting place of Paul Lynde, actor and host of the game show Hollywood Squares from 1968-1979. He died in Beverly Hills, California, but he was buried next to his parents at this cemetery. I won't go into too many details on his life and career here on the site, but if you'd like more info check out http://home.columbus.rr.com/paullynde/, a fantastic site with lots and lots of information about Paul Lynde.
Joe Florenski, the webmaster of the site I mentioned above, sent me this interesting information about the date of birth on Paul Lynde's gravestone:
"A funny thing about Paul's gravestone. For some reason, it lists 1927 as his date of birth, even though he was born in 1926. I verified it with a birth certificate because it's one of the frequent questions I receive."
