Re: Redman Cemetery - Shelby County, Ohio
In Response To: Re: Collins Cemetery - Shelby County, Ohio ()
From 'Memorial Records, Shelby County, Ohio (1975)"
"Probably abandoned before the turn of the century (1900), this cemetery served the early colored settlers of the once thriving Rumley community in Van Buren Township. It is located approximately one-half mile south-west of the intersection of Amsterdam and Staley roads. As virtually nothing remains of the cemetery today (1975), the following inscriptions, recorded about 40 years ago (1935), are the best records available".
Redman, Nancy, wife of George, d Nov 7, 1839, 53y
