This cemetery is located in Trumbull Co. in Gustavus Twp. on Gardner-Barclay Rd. east of  Rt 193. I began in the northwest corner and worked from north to south down the rows each time, and from west to east across the cemetery.

Row Order

Row 1:


“In memory of the young beautiful and innocent Frances Maria Buel   who was butchered by her stepfather Ira W. Gardner Aug. 8, 1932 in the 16th   year of her age.

Death  chilled this fair fountain ere sorrow hath stained it.
Twas frozen in all the pure light of its course.
But she sleeps till the sunshine of heaven unchains it
To water that Eden where first was its source.”
