Caesar Creek Cemetery - Warren County, Ohio : The fourth in a series of rural cemeteries of southwest Ohio took me to Caesar Creek Cemetery in Warren County.  The wooded setting and stone wall surrounding this burial ground at the end of an isolated lane provided a quaint and secluded setting that is more reminiscent of a New England landscape than Ohio.  The gravestones needed some attention but the neatly manicured lawn gave that cared-for feel.  This may be a nice place to return to when the autumn colors bring a new backdrop and the ticks have disappeared for the season.

Sharon Cemetery - Clinton County, Ohio : Sharon United Methodist Church is a pretty white-framed country church positioned along the roadway on route 380 in Chester Township, Ohio.  Sharon Cemetery is tucked neatly behind this Clinton County church with grave markers dating to the mid 1800's.  A variety of gravestones provides some nice perspectives for this photographer documenting the third in a series of rural cemeteries of southwest Ohio.

(old) Chinese cemeteries Silom Rd. : Several Chinese cemeteries are situated in the area bordered by the Silom Rd., de Nara Thiwat Rajanagarindra Rd. and the Pan Rd.
This is one of them which is completely in decay, one third inundated and full of soi-dogs. 
Making photos was not allowed. 
One of the cemeteries notes that it is for “straits-born Chinese” which is more or less in decay. The last funeral was around 1939, I couldn’t find tombs of more recent date.

The oldest part which must be from late 1800 I guess.

Jonah's Run Cemetery - Clinton County, Ohio : Part II of the Rural Ohio Cemeteries series.  This one is the Jonah's Run Cemetery.  It sits beside the Jonah's Run Baptist Church in Chester Township, Ohio.  I never knew Chester even existed, but it sits on route 73 in Clinton County, Ohio, just southeast of Caesar Creek Lake.  This cemetery is the nicest kept of the cemeteries that I visited on my tour through rural SW Ohio.  It was also very orderly, with all grave markers nicely erect and very precise in their alignment.  It has aged very well over the years and, with the backdrop of the simple church building, provides a nice resting place.

Mercer Cemetery - Greene County, Ohio : This is the first in a series on rural cemeteries of SW Ohio.  This is Mercer Cemetery, Greene County, Spring Valley, Ohio.  The beautiful old cedars add some nice character to this resting place.  I really like the way the mid-morning light was filtering through the trees and gently falling on the gravestones and neatly manicured green grass.  It wasn't long after this that the area endured drought conditions and the landscape turned yellow.  I guess that would create a whole different feel to this old cemetery where at least one marker is dated as early as 1827 (see image 18).
