The cemetery is in the northwest quarter of Section 26, on the west side of the Tipp-Cowlesville Road (aka County Road 153) at the south edge of Tipp City limits. A local Boy Scout troop has undertaken the project of picking up the fragments of gravestones and mounting them into a wall at the front of the wooded area which was the cemetery.
Go your way to the land of the Ancestors,
where they wait for you with open arms, there on the edge between this world and the next.
See; there they stand.
Ancestral spirits, welcome this one
to the place where we all must go.
