UPDATE: Tyler Jones, of Ottawa, Ohio is shown in the picture above with his parents, erecting a sign at the Pioneer Cemetery in Ottawa. Tyler started work on clearing this site of overgrown weeds, poison ivy, and broken limbs for his Eagle Scout Project. Tyler is a member of Boy Scout Troop 224. Thank you Tyler for all your hard work and dedication to this project!

also known as: "The Old Indian Cemetery"
This cemetery is located east of the Railroad and north of Tawa Run and the Catholic Church and School in Ottawa, Ohio. I took these pictures Sept 15,2009. I was delighted to see that it is getting some much deserved attention. It has been so overgrown for years, that you couldn't get through it at all. I am hoping that they are getting ready to renovate it. I took several pictures, and they are peppered with the red flags, which indicate where markers or pieces of markers are located. I will update this info as I receive it. Here is a website that has more info and history on this cemetery.
Information obtained from the Putnam County Library states as follows:
The land was given to be used as a cemetery to the United Methodist Church by Lucius Hubbard. It is believed that the first burial was that of John Huber. Info on Burials as read by Audrey S Carroll and Mary Otto in 1976 by only fragments of headstones found, are as follows:
