Olin Cemetery


The following interments come to you through the generosity of Melissa Johansen.

I spent the morning out at the Olin Cemetery on Buchanan Rd. I took the time to transcribe what stones that are left out there and here is what I have found. I made the mistake of not bringing any equipment to do rubbings. There are also several stones that seem to be missing. You can tell where flowers have been planted around where a stone used to be. I talked to Duane Moore. His father used to be the caretaker out there over 10 years ago and he had found a woman taking stones from the cemetery. Anyway, here is what we could find out there.
