This is a combined list using Jan Geyer's list and my own notes.  If you see that we are missing any of the Richland Co. cemeteries ... PLEASE  contact me!   

Thanks also should go to Janet for the location of Pavonia Cemetery and to Jean for the location of Secrist-Tarres Cemetery, and to Melissa for the location of High Point Cemetery.  Jess has also helped greatly by adding new entries and updating some of the info. on this list in March, 2004.

Since many people have asked me about the condition of various cemeteries in Richland County, and who is responsible for their maintenance - I have decided to post the following quote from an article in the Mansfield News Journal, dated May 14, 2003.  "Richland County Deputy Auditor Richard Gulley said only two Richland County townships -- Cass and Troy -- have levies specifically for cemetery maintenance.  The rest must find money from their general funds".
