    Brumbaugh Family Graveyard

From page 84 of the Book:
Cemetery Inscriptions of Newberry Township in Miami County Ohio
by Joseph H. Bosserman

    Also known by some as the Bitner Cemetery, the Brumbaugh Cemetery and the Old Bloomer Cemetery (the later name sometimes being confused with the Freidens Lutheran Church Cemetery).

    This cemetery is along the south edge of a woods which lays a couple hundred yards north of State Route 185. It is in the northwest quarter of Section 11, Township 9, Range 4 east. This is in Newberry Township, Miami County, Ohio. It is about one-quarter of a mile east of the Bradford-Bloomer Road and on the south bank of the Stillwater River, north of State Route 185.  It is south of a cliff overlooking the river.

    The cemetery has been inactive for over 150 years and is not cared for nor fenced. The entire area is overgrown in scrub trees and vines covering some of the stones which are no longer standing. It is likely that some stones are missing. Every effort was made to uncover and read all of the stones. The readings were taken on 17 August 1979 by Joseph H. Bosserman and Gale E. Honeyman and compared with readings taken on 8 April 1973 by Don Bowman.
