John & Margaret CREED
I've been one of two people working on a rather large project to determine whose remains were moved from the Old City Cemetery/M.E. Cemetery to Forest Rose, Elmwood, or elsewhere, and who is still buried there. I've worked with the city cemetery office, and also spent time in the Section (of Forest Rose Cemetery) where a number of graves were re-interred. Probing (and then excavating) revealed 7 more stones under the sod. A local 4th-generation funeral director was also helpful in providing first-hand knowledge of the cemetery.

A Master List has been made of all the known burials in the old cemetery (about 310). Of those, it appears that only 78 were moved. John and Margaret CREED are among the roughly 230 remaining burials in what is now a city park.

RE: Robert Caldwell
Very glad to help. I'm sorry the stone is in such poor condition. I also shot his wife's stone (Bell Caldwell) and posted it.

More Info re: Old Lancaster BG
I have pursued your photo request. The Old Lancaster Burial Ground no longer exists as a cemetery. Many of the people interred there were moved to Forest Rose Cemetery or Elmwood Cemetery. Some families relocated loved ones' remains to other cemeteries in and out of state. Unfortunately, I am unable to verify that your relative was re-interred at Forest Rose or at Elmwood using cemetery readings of the Fairfield County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society. Please contact FCCOGS at for more information.

Old City Burial Ground
The old City (Lancaster) Burial Ground/Old Methodist Cemetery no longer exists. In 1907, the remains were to be moved. Many were moved to Elmwood or Forest Rose Cemeteries in Lancaster. Contact the Fairfield County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogy Society for more information.

Debbie, thanks a million for the picture. I am kinda surprised that you found it. I thought the last name would be Holland. Thank you very much for taking the time.

Thank you so very much for going to the cemetery and taking the photo of Buddy Hodges' headstone and placing it on his memorial. Your kindness is greatly appreciated! In memory
