Thanks to “Find A Grave” contributor, Marianna Morgan, for discovering that Ruben James Dorman was buried at the Sheep Pen Cemetery that straddles the boundary between Perry Township in Fayette County, Ohio and Madison Township in Highland County, Ohio. The burial information is on his death certificate. However, his name does not appear on any published tombstone transcription records because no grave marker has yet to be found for him.
His wife, Flora B. Grieves Dorman, who died in 1906, does have a medium size white marble grave marker at Sheep Pen Cemetery.
The 1900 U. S. Census shows that Ruben and Flora were the parents of 10 children.
Thanking Scott Andersen who shares these new “Before and After Cleaning” photographs of white marble markers set in slotted bases at the Old Burying Ground in Greenfield, Highland County, Ohio.
The gravestones are for the following (left to right):
They are starting to lighten up!”
The Old Burying Ground is Greenfield’s oldest cemetery where many of its earliest pioneers were laid to rest. Original headstones mark their graves. Most have long needed extensive cleaning, repairing, and re-setting.
The results are strikingly clear.
This all-volunteer group of historical society members and concerned folks who want to join them are getting the job done one grave marker at a time; making great strides by advancing row by row. Their organized planning and caring hands approach have truly transformed this once neglected and deteriorated cemetery that has silently sat on the Paint Creek’s western edge for well over two hundred years.
Sharing this story from the “Columbus Dispatch” from September 15, 2015.

If you suffer from back pain (possibly low back pain); have had an MRI test conducted on the Lumbar area or possibly other areas of your spine — PLEASE request a written copy of the results of your spinal MRI — even if the doctor says your results are “Normal”.
After reading through the results, if you see “Tarlov Cysts” or Perineural Cysts mentioned in your report; but no other description about them — such as their exact size, exact number at a specific location, then please call your doctor and ask him or her to contact the radiologist to have them amend your MRI report to include those details, and obtain the revised report with that information.
This information about your “Tarlov Cysts” is important for you to know.
Unfortunately, most doctors, even specialists, contend that Tarlov cysts, particularly smaller ones, are asymptomatic (meaning no symptoms which equals no pain.)
However, it has been shown that Tarlov cysts can cause pain primarily if the person has experienced some traumatic event. This type of trauma would include such events as falling or being in a vehicle accident, or even picking up heavy items.
I feel it is good to know these things as it can help you with your daily activities and make decisions about what to refrain from doing, and being more careful with your walking so you don’t fall.

“Tarlov cyst is a bulbous enlargement of a spinal nerve root cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) space that is distinct from other meningeal cysts, such as dural ectasia or meningeal diverticula. Tarlov cysts most often are found in the sacral spinal canal, where they can produce bone erosion and compression of adjacent spinal nerve roots, resulting in a debilitating sacral radiculopathy syndrome.
“Tarlov first described these cysts in 1938 during his autopsy studies of the filum terminale at the Montreal Neurological Institute.1 Since his seminal report, numerous cases of symptomatic Tarlov cysts have been published in the literature.2–7 With the advent of MRI, our ability to diagnose meningeal cysts, such as Tarlov cysts, has been enhanced.”
