The West Barre Cemetery is southeast of Wauseon, northeast of the junction of County Road C, County Road 13 and Township Road AC. The cemetery is located several yards off the road with access by a grass lane located behind a barn at the northeast corner of the intersection. The burial ground is on land deeded to A.K. Augustus in 1834. The community of West Barre developed at the five corners and had a Baptist Church, United Brethren Church, general store, blacksmith shop, grange, ashery and a post office. A school house was located one-half mile south of the corners. The post office operated from 1851 until 1872 with Amos Taft as the post master. The cemetery, deeded to the township in 1843, is all that remains of the old village.
The cemetery is located in York Township, Fulton County, Ohio, and is # 3792 (West Barrie Cemetery / West Barre Cemetery) in “Ohio Cemeteries 1803-2003”, compiled by the Ohio Genealogical Society.
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Geographic Names Information System (GNIS) feature ID for the cemetery is 1079972 (Westbarre Cemetery / West Barre Cemetery / West Barrie Cemetery).
