Pisgah Cemetery (Miami Co.)

I got your email from and had a question for you...not sure if you can help or not but thought I'd try.

I am in the Pittsburgh, PA area and planning a trip to Tipp City Ohio next week.  I wanted to visit the graves of my 3rd great grandparents, Louis and Phebe Gearhard (and daughter Rebecca), who are buried in Pisgah Cemetery (Miami County).  The issue I am having is that the people who own the property where the cemetery is located are not answering phone calls, so I can't get permission to visit.  

I noticed that in response to a photo request on findagrave that you had visited the cemetery, and was wondering if you remembered anything about it or if it is accessible from the road, etc.
I am trying to find out the legal issues around accessing the cemetery but am not having any luck.  

If you have any suggestions, I would appreciate your thoughts - it may have been a while ago that you were there, but as I said I thought I would try!

Thanks for any help you could offer...

RE: Barrick & Rodeheaver
I was determined. I went there 3 weeks ago in the pouring down rain and did all but one big section with a steep hill, so I went back yesterday. 3 weeks ago there was 64 requests, now only 3. also a mildred barrick i found but in wrong cemetery, not sure if that was yours or not

Well, all who worked on the grave site deserve recognition. When I showed a copy of the findagrave page on Archibald and Mary to David Houchin in Clarksburg he mentioned that he had spoken with you and was very complementary.So I thank you all. It's also nice to meet a new cousin! Linda Thrasher Gee Nestle

Thanks so much for your part in the renovation/excavation of the graves in this cemetery! I was really excited when I just happened to stumble upon the Findagrave site, especially the terrific pictures and bios! I was aware of these ancestors of mine but had no idea where they ended their days. Thanks to "Susie" Sherwood for responding to my email so quickly and helping us get to the burial site! Fantastic visit, and we met a new cousin also.I am a direct descendant of Archibald and Mary through their daughter Ara Isabel Thrasher.

Thank You
Just happen to be on findagrave this morning when you accepted the edits I sent. These people are a couple of branches away from my tree but when I am researching and find good information I like to share it. I do my research mostly on the LDS Church site "Family Search" because it is free. I go to my local library to get on Ancestry but do not use their info unless it can be backed up with sources.
Thought you might like to know.
Thanks so much for all you do on findagrave and for the attention to the edits.
Best Wishes, Lily
