Shannon Cemetery plans debated Bluffton cemetery neglected – LimaOhio.com – limaohio.com.

Sharing this Lima (Allen County) Ohio newspaper story regarding the Shannon Cemetery in Bluffton, Ohio where standing gravestones as well as unearthed grave markers were removed from the cemetery to be later placed in a large concrete base and put on display elsewhere on the property. The Shannon Cemetery no longer has any standing gravestones because of the actions of one man and his ‘vision’ for the cemetery to be turned into a ‘cemetery – park.’  Civil War and Rev. War veterans are also buried at the Shannon Cemetery.
