Old German Cemetery
I liked your timeline for the old german cemetery. Just wanted to add a bit to it. I remember as a child in the early to mid 70's there was quite a lot of rain one year. So much in fact that the hillside behind the old cemetery began to erode. Euclid avenue runs right along behind. There was quite a lot of wood (obviously from caskets, you could see them hanging out of the ground at the top of the hill) and bones that were washing down the steep bank headed right toward euclid avenue.

There was an aweful amount of fear involved at the time. It was well known that some of the folks buried there had been victims of epidemics. The fear was that whatever caused the original epidemic may still be able to cause another epidemic. The fear was so great that the A & P and Kroger grocery stores and Sun Drug store that used the parking lot that cemetery had been paved over for, hardly had any customers. It was very strange passing there and not seeing all the cars. We were even told while riding past, to put our hands over our mouths, "just in case" .

The horrible situation was also compounded by a scandal that broke out about why were there still remains entombed there in the first place. It was originally stated that they had removed the bodies (as you said) to the county home grounds. Apparently the money had been paid out, but it was then obvious that the whole job hadnt been done. No one was ever held responsible for wrong doing.

As some scandals happen, some other event took it from the headlines and nothng was ever done to investigate why these poor souls were paved over instead of getting a decent and respectful interment. They simply removed the "offending and upsetting" caskets and bones, regraded the hill and the matter was done.

Im just very grateful to my great grandparents for relocating our relatives to Hillview and Union cemeteries.

Sarah McCormick 50788439
Hi Kimberlie, I wonder if you received my request for a transfer of Sarah McCormick? I have several things to add and it is much easier to do from the bio sections than thru this edit box.The McCormicks are my relatives, so I have much information on this cemetery, Made a trip in 1989 and 1992. I took photos and included them in a book published in 2001.
Now, I am trying to get the memorials complete on Find A Grave, so that I can link our families. Will transfer back when I finish adding. Will be leaving soon for a short vacation and would like to begin work on this. Will appreciate a reply. Louise

Bash Cemetary--Michael Rings

I wish to thank you thank you thank you for this fantastic cleanup.

I traced this cemetery years ago by hunting it down on old maps...I literally found it by spotting only the concrete steps leading up to top of hill full of overgrowth....the steps were where Bash was supposed to be by the map I had. Searching for my ancestor's 1815 grave there was a genuine thrill...found it.....completely abandoned and overgrown, etc. Being from Michigan, I didn't make it back there to clean up...
Now I must make the trip back there for a look-see again.

Paula... please submit parents memorial numbers so I can link them. You've sent me several "edits" but aren't providing all of the info needed. Tks :)

Can you add the information in the bio, without a link?

Thank you

Homer Daugherty Paxson

I have found an error on Homer Daugherty Paxson, Find A Grave# 65834960. His parents are listed , currently, as Chester Allen Paxson Find A Grave# 99174700 and Chester's wife, Emily Barker Paxson Find A Grave# 99175238. This is not correct. this is Homer's brother and sister -in-law. Homer's parents should be listed as:
Charles E. Paxson Find A Grave# 99163953 and Homer's mother, Lida Daugherty Paxson Find A Grave# 99176926. Will you make the appropriate corrections?

Thank you!
