Lobaugh / Wattsbaugh Private Cemetery


"Lobaugh or Wattsbaugh Private Cemetery is situated on a sandy knoll, covered with oak bushes, one-half mile S.E. of the N.W. corner of Jefferson Township in the N.W. 1/4 sec. 6, now the property of John Gougle. In this elevated yet lonely place Mrs. Lobaugh was laid to rest in 1839. She was the mother of John A Fuller's first wife. A number of unmarked graves are here located and the following inscriptions are taken from marble slabs lying under the trees and covered with leaves: Andrew Cast, son of W. and S. Cast, died 1852; Henry Cast, son of W. and S. Cast, died 1854; Alvin, son of S. and L. Swartzell, died 1853; Martha, daughter of J.C. and S. Wattsbaugh, died 1854.

 This burial ground was started by Lobaugh and Wattsbaughm who owned the adjoining farm, but no deeds or reservations were ever made."
