Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired educator living in the village of Poland, Ohio. I have recently done extensive work in the Poland Presbyterian Graveyard (Poland Village Cemetery) attempting to document burials. Many of the stones are partially or totally illegible at this time.Thankfully I have a report of most of the grave inscriptions done in the 1980's and I have added them to this site. I would be happy to fulfill photo requests or attempt to answer questions regarding burials.

An index and listing of burials with the inscriptions is available in the church office and in my possession.
Please feel free to use the photographs of graves that I have posted.

Other cemeteries in Poland are at Poland Center (closed to burials) and the larger Poland Riverside Cemetery which opened in 1865.

I forgot to say thanks for creating a memorial for his wife. These people are my Father's 2nd cousins.

Thank you for the quality image of the marker I requested. I am a volunteer myself in the area. However, in the last four years I have had almost no time to go grave running because I'm my Father's full time caregiver and my life is not my own just now. I do live close to where your requests are and the first moment I can arrange to go I will get these for you. Again, thank you.

Thank you so much for so quickly transferring your memorial to me. I really appreciate all your research and work on these. You have so carefully put together the memorials. I Will take good care of this one especialiy as this is a very impt family member for us. Should you find any new material on the Wrights I would so much like hearing from you. Half a Continent away it is difficult to get to local searchings there in Pennsylvania!
Very best regards
