Shaffer Union Cemetery gets a much needed facelift
May 14, 2020
Shaffer Union Cemetery, often just called Shaffer Cemetery, is located in Section 22 of Harrison Township. Isaac Shaffer donated the land, part of his homestead, for the cemetery. The cemetery is an old one, with at least three burials in 1873.
Davis, Donahoo, Fringer, Kranatz, Korb, Morris, Paul Roe, Rogers, Shaffer, Shaw, Tegley, Tindall and Williams are but a few of families with multiple members buried in the cemetery.
The cemetery has been getting some much-needed repair work done. Doug Boyles, cemetery sexton, saw the need and arranged for some help.
