FFOH-DEL 01:  D069:  TOMBSTONES INSCRIPTIONS AND OTHER RECORDS OF DELAWARE COUNTY, OHIO. Including Portions of Morrow and Monroe Counties.  By Esther Weygant Powell.  1972, 448 pages 8 “ by 11:, hardbound  $50.  These cemetery inscriptions were copied by Clara and Louise Mark in the 1940s.  They consist of the older inscriptions that were found in the original Delaware County which included parts of the area that became Morrow in 1848 and Monroe in 1813 when those counties were formed out of property that was originally in Delaware.  Not all of the cemeteries were copied and not all of the more recent burials were copied.  Mrs. Powell added to this work after the Mark’s sisters’ information was given to her.  She added the office burial records of the very large Oakwood Cemetery at Delaware, Ohio.  These records included the records of the older Delaware City Cemeteries moved into Oakwood and some of the records of the adjoining St. Mary’s Catholic Cemetery.  There are many tombstones of interest in the 120 year old cemetery.  There is an index to the major portions of the book, beginning on page 378 to 392.  Surnames appearing on more than three pages are:  Adams, Aldrich, Alexander, Alford, Allen, Aller, Alspach, Anderson, Andrews, Andrus, Armstrong, Arnold, Ashbrook, Atherton, Atkinson, Austin, Avery, Ayers, Bailey, Baker, Barber, Barcus, Barnard, Barnes, Barr, Barrett, Barry, Bartholomew, Bartlett, Barton, Baxter, Beach, Bean, Beard, Bearnes, Bell, Bel/lus, Benedict, Bennett, Benson, Benton, Berry, Bevelhymer, Biggs, Bishop, Black, Blain/e, Boardman, Bookove(n/r), Bookhove(n/r), Boger, Boston, Bovey, Bowers, Bowman, Bowyer, Boyd, Bradley, Breece, Brenizer, Bricker, Browning, Brown, Bruce, Brundige, Buck, Budd, Buel/l, Bunker, Burch, Burns, Burrough/s, Bush, Butler, Butt/s, Cadwallader, Caldwell, Campbell, Carhart, Carney.  This is just the first two pages of the index.  Sorry, if you are looking for a specific surname, call me.  As long as I have the book, I will look it up for you.  There is also a list, not included in the index, of Delaware County men born before 1801 buried in Old Delaware County, Ohio.   Price $50
