Erie County, Ohio
Smith Burying Ground
Researched by Henry Timman Norwalk, Ohio
Lot 10 Range 2 of Berlin Township was settled by Hezekiah Smith at an
early day, and might still be owned by his descendants. There was a family cemetery near the house, and the
stones were later used for a sidewalk to the outside privy, so I'm told. I have a Genealogical
History of the Descendants of Rev. Nehemiah Smith of New London County, Conn.,
published 1889 by H. Allen Smith. Hezekiah of Berlin was a descendant, and these
dates and burials are listed in this "family ground".
