Oertley Cemetery
S.E. 1/4 section10, Akron Township



This is a family cemetery that dates to the mid-1800's.
 Cemetery Status: DESPOILED.
What was once the Oertley family cemetery is now just a mound in the middle of a corn field.

The first sign that this mound is a cemetery
was the sight of these two pieces of stone.
