History: Of the five cemeteries in Bath Township, this is the only one for which no burial records are known to exist. The cemetery was originally the private burial ground of the Elisha Miller family and was known simply as Miller Cemetery. Eventually, its care was transferred to Bath Township. Nearly invisible from the nearby Route 18, it is interesting to note that when this highway was widened some years back, it was given a gentle curve to avoid disturbing the small cemetery.
Mrs. Joseph Weaver copied the existing stones in 1976 and rechecked them in 1978.
Gravestone inscriptions have been published in our 1978 book "Summit County Cemetery Inscriptions Vol 1" [pages 3-21]. The original volume is available in the Special Collections Dept. of the Akron-Summit County Public Library (Main Branch) as well as many other local libraries.
This cemetery has now been updated and the inscription readings were released in 2009 in the "Bath Township Cemeteries" book, currently available for purchase.
The Summit County Chapter, OGS, is always looking for new information on our county's lost or forgotten cemeteries. If you have questions or information on this cemetery please contact the Cemetery Chairperson.
