Hardesty Cemetery

Brown Twp., Carroll Co., OH
Located in a private field high above the village of Malvern, it is one of the earliest cemeteries in Carroll Co.  Please obtain permission from Donald Craft, E. Main St. Ext., Malvern, OH before climbing the very steep hill behind his house.  Stones were photographed in September, 2002 by Linda Gernert Houyouse.  The following were read beginning with the last row and working toward the entrance to the cemetery.  Almost all stones were chalked.  Due to the weathered condition (as you can see by clicking on the links) many were difficult to read. Please document questionable information with other sources.
