This is the first in a series on rural cemeteries of SW Ohio. This is Mercer Cemetery, Greene County, Spring Valley, Ohio. The beautiful old cedars add some nice character to this resting place. I really like the way the mid-morning light was filtering through the trees and gently falling on the gravestones and neatly manicured green grass. It wasn't long after this that the area endured drought conditions and the landscape turned yellow. I guess that would create a whole different feel to this old cemetery where at least one marker is dated as early as 1827 (see image 18).
