I ran across this cemetery wandering around Ohio back in 2006.  Back then it was overgrown with weeds and had no access except across a field full of briars.  Since then, the town of Lynchburg had taken great pains to clean it up, and are working on access from a nearby highway.  Once forgotten, this cemetery is guarded by a WW2 75mm pack howitzer, a common theme for Ohio cemeteries.

 The newest grave is at least a hundred years old, but there seems to be a few veterans here from the Civil War.  The dedication stone mentions a battle site close by, involving Simon Kenton and his pals against their nemesis, Tecumseh.  Indian/Settler battle sites abound in Southern  Ohio, and a few pack howitzers would have come in handy in 1792.
