LuAnn Staley reported on 6/5/1999 that she had spotted a lone grave behind a residence on Dieterlen Road. Upon investigation, she learned that David Dieterlen owns the property and, although the house looks for all the world like an old church or maybe a school house, he reports it has "always been a house". (See photo above, left.)
On the north end of the house, about 10 feet from the building, is a small gravestone (see photo above, right). It is perhaps the only grave here. All the stone says is:
Infant son of
R. C. and M. E.
According to the Clark County Health Department, this is probably a child of Robert C. and Mary Elizabeth Dieterlen, born circa 1880-1920. However, the Health Department has no specific record of an infant death for this couple, just several birth records.
We presently have no further information on this cemetery. Further information may be available from:
