*This is probably NOT a complete list of all burials*

Frame Cemetery is located in the southwest quarter of Section 25, Township 8, Range 1. It is on the south side of the Washington-Jackson Road, one-half mile east of the Gettysburg-Oxford Road. Cemetery can be reached by crossing portion of a field. It is enclosed by fence and is well cared for. It is no longer active. Inscriptions taken in October, 1967 by Mrs. Don Short and Mrs. Dale Bowers.
The land on which this cemetery is located was owned by John Frame until his death. By a series of quit claim deeds his heirs sold this land to William Frame, also an heir. Apparently up until this time the cemetery was considered a private family cemetery, as no mention was made of it until the time of the following deed:
