FORMERLY BURIED HERE?
The four individuals listed below are all now buried at Spring Grove Cemetery in Section 9, Lot 18. That lot was purchased by L.B. Nettleton on October 7, 1904 and cemetery records show that Aushia, Julia, and Fally were all removed from somewhere else and moved to Spring Grove in 1907. There is no evidence connecting them with the Old Medina Cemetery – though that is also certainly a possibility for their original burial place. More likely is that they were buried in the Northrop Cemetery. Lewis B. Nettleton owned the east half of Lot 56 for many years and the Nettletons are related to the Northrops by marriage. Burial here makes a great deal of sense and might even explain the empty row (Row 2).

NETTLETON
Aushia J., 1847-1864
Lewis B., 1807-1904
Julia B., 1805-1883
