Search Friend Cemetery:

Friend Cemetery was created in 1859 when William Friend, son of Samuel Friend & Elizabeth Goodhart, died. His estate papers stated that his wife ordered a gravestone from S.Brownell of Chillicothe, Ohio, and the stone was to be erected near her house and one mile west of the South Perry store. She was going to bury him in the 'back yard' of their home. He was buried in the 'back yard' which is now known as the Friend Cemetery, Sam Karr Road west of South Perry, Perry Township, Hocking County, Ohio. Today the 'back yard' cemetery is across the field and in the woods. In 2002 this compiler visited the cemetery and found only one gravestone for the Infant s/o Salem and Catherine Friend, plus a foot stone with 'W. F' on it.
