Hi,

I'm looking for the location of the "Old Dutch Cemetery" that's supposed to be south of St. Clairsville. Would anyone happen to have the GPS coordinates?

I found a description "Located 1/2 mile off County Rd 5 about 1 mile SW of the intersection with State Route 9." But as I look at a map that doesn't make any sense to me. It would make sense if it were SE instead of SW, but I still don't know that I could find it.

I plan on visiting Ohio in a couple of weeks and would love to visit this cemetery - if I can find it! :-)

There are burials listed for this cemetery at Find-A Grave, and via google, it appear sit is also known as Zion Cemetery.

Yeah, I saw the cemetery on Find A Grave, problem is the location information is pretty much what I wrote in my initial post. Hadn't heard that it was also called Zion Cemetery, I'll have to see if I can find anything about that.

The cemetery itself is on private land. You turn right off of State Route 9 and go into a residential neighbor and another right onto a gravel driveway. Ask permission at home.

No. Didn't have a lot of time to look though. I hope to go back again next summer and try again.
