It is rather remarkable that in a cemetery so old and so celebrated as Prospect, no more monuments of elderly persons are found.
Whether it is because few are buried there, or because the placing of memorial stones has been neglected, we cannot tell.
An old Cemetery; many graves; few tombstones; many old settlers doubtless lie sleeping beneath the grassy sod,
but no human eye can designate the spots whore they respectively wait the last great day.

The old Ridgeville Graveyard is in disuse and neglected. Most of the interments in the region are made in Ritenour's Cemetery,
as the oldest and most carefully kept burial-ground in the region. One would have supposed that a place settled as long as the vicinity of Ridgeville has been,
would have had a carefully preserved cemetery, dating back from the olden time. Such seems, however, to be not the fact. Indeed,
the extensive settlement of the neighborhood was accomplished only much later than the original entry into that wilderness by the Lewallyns, the Kizers and the Wards.
The old graveyard at Ridgeville appears to have been uusuitable, and, therefore, little used, and the new one has been opened for interments only for a short time.

Sparrow Creek (north of Buena Vista; Section 33, Town 20, Range 14)

This graveyard is much out of repair. Few tombstones are found. Daniel Beals' grave is there, who was quite aged.
Several Addingtons lie there, but no gravestones, except Daniel Beals,' show an age beyond sixty years.
Many graves appear, but nearly all have only rough stones, without any mark or definite token.
A Friends' Meeting-House was once here, but it has been gone for forty years or more.
The cemetery has an old fence around it, but the only way of access is through an old field, and it is, perhaps, fifty rods from the highway.

Abram Clevinger, very old; Eunice, wife of the above, very old. We learned but little concerning the above burial ground.
It was once with a Friends' Meeting-House, but the meeting was " laid down" (discontinued), and the graveyard has been but little in use for many years.
We did not succeed in making it a visit. That is the only one (so far as we are aware) to which we failed to give a personal examination, being prevented there from by unavoidable circumstances.

Cemeteries, Union City

The first burying ground for Union City was laid out by Hon. Jere Smith and Dr. J, N. Converse, north of the original plat,
chiefly between Howard and Plum, and somewhat north of Division street, and including what is now Oak Grove, the elegant residence and grounds of E. L. Anderson, Esq.

There were 517 lots for private owners, and Lots 25 and 20 besides. Some burials took place there, but the ground seemed not suitable, and it was but little used, and at this time many, perhaps most or all of the bodies, have been removed.

Other grounds were selected, an association was formed, and a new cemetery was established. Union City Cemetery Association
was formed Febmary 4, 1803. The first Trustees were Finley Maloy, James White, Isaac P. Gray, John L. Rosenbush, Joel N. Converse.

The company first bought six acres of land of Joel N. Converse, west of the present city limits, between the pike and the railroad. They next (in 1867), bought about one acre of Joel N. Converse, extending the ground north to the pike, and two acres southward to the railroad; plat recorded October 21, 1870. The third purchase was twelve acres west of the creek (1874), This last tract, as also the new grounds south, has never been platted into lots. Cost of the grounds: six acres at IIOO per acre, $600; three acres at $150 per acre, $450; twelve acres at $200 per acre, $2,400; total, $3,450. The original six acres were platted into 825 lots, with suitable streets between the lots, the record of the plat being made July 28, 1803, and the new purchase north has been platted. The plat was recorded October 21, 1870; number of lots, 120; size of lots, eight to thirty feet wide; price of lots in general, $1.50 per foot front; price of lots on streeta, 10- per cent extra; price of lots at comers, 20 per cent exti'a; owners of lots, 328; price of digging graves at first, $1.50. under ten years; $2 above ton years; price of digging granes now, $3 and $4. The company has been somewhat crippled by the last purchase, being considerably in debt on account of it, and not much improvement has been attempted. However, a hedge has been set around the cemetery, and it is now in the second year's growth. The ground is well situated for the purposes of burial, being moderately rolling. Several lots have been set apart irrecoverably for the interment of soldiers, as also a considerable space for the use of non-lot owners. Many fine monuments and some costly ones have been erected at the graves of friends, and some shrubbery has been set, and fences placed around lots, and the cemetery begins to present a neat and tasteful, and even elegant appearance. Among others is found the beautiful shaft erected as a soldier's moniunont. It makes a fine display, and is a creditable and appropriate tribute to the memory of the brave departed. It is to be regretted that provision was not made for engraving upon the monument the several names of the soldiers at their respective interments. The Sextons have been as follows
First, Samuel Sutton, until April, 1872;
second, F. A. Hinsch, until April, 1874;
third, J. M. Wren, until December, 1875;
fourth, B. F. Buckingham, to the present time, July 27, 1881.

No record of burials was kept for many years. The record was begun April 8, 1872, and has been continued to the present time.

The number of interments is given herewith: Rest of the year 1872, twenty-nine; whole of 1873, forty-one; 1874, thirtynine; 1875, forty-five; 1876, sixty-nine; 1877, forty-five; 1878, thirty-six; 1879, fifty-two; 1880, fortytliree; 1881 (part), forty.

The varying number of interments is somewhat striking: Last five months of 1880, thirteen; first five months of 1881, thirty-five; last three months of 1880, five; first three months of 1881, twenty-four; last two months of 1880, one; first two months of 1881, fourteen. The lowest number in one month is none; the greatest number is ten, viz., March, 1881.

This record of interments does not show the full number of deaths in the city or its vicinity. The Catholics have a cemetery in the neighborhood, and all persons belonging to them are interred in that inclosure. Many are taken to the places where friends or companions have been deposited in former years. Ever since the appointment of memorial services on Decoration Day, May 80th, (or May 31st if the 30th fall on Sunday), by the Grand Army of the Republic, appropriate and affecting, and sometimes greatly impressive observances have been hold at the cemetery from year to year. The present burial-ground is apparently well suited to its objects, and will remain doubtless permanently consecrated to its sadly interesting purposes. The location is at a reasonable, yet not too great distance from the city. The ground is sufficiently rolling to present an agreeable appearance, and dry enough to answer the use to which it has been devoted, with sufficient slope, moreover, to allow a ready and adequate drainage, lying on both sides of the bed of the Little Mississinewa.

The situation is retired, yet not too much so, lying between the highway leading to the fair grounds on the one hand, and the two westward railroad tracks on the other, and only just outside the city limits. As already hinted, something has been done by way of ornamentation, many tasteful and some costly monuments have been erected in memorial of friends who are " loved, not lost;" and the whole result appears to approve the judgment and justify the discretion of those who made this second selection of a cemetery for Union City. The regulations as to entrance and deportment are strict, yet not too severe, but simply intended to secure the quiet, order and decorum needful in a place allotted to the resting-place for the dead.

Doubtless many persons are interred throughout the county in private grounds unknown to the general public at the present time, as also to the writer of these sketches.
In concluding this memorial to the dead, it is proper to state that great labor has been bestowed upon the subject, yet the result obtained cannot be supposed to be entirely accurate, nor fully complete.
But it may be truly declared that the whole is as thorough as it was in the power of the autlior to accomplish;
and the hope is indulged that a generous public will appreciate the difficulties of the task attempted,
and forgive such defects and errors as may by a critical examination be discovered to exist.
