Gravesites overrun for Civil War veterans at Miami County cemetery

Published: Wednesday, May 23, 2018 @ 10:48 PM

Jackson Cemetery just outside Piqua is home to Civil War veterans and many African-Americans who were born slaves but died free.

The cemetery has been a historical landmark for the last 10 years.

However, of concern to Piqua resident Della Shaffer is that some of these historical gravesites are overrun by brush.

She knows of nine veterans buried here and has seen at least five headstones in the woods.

“I think it’s very disrespectful and it’s kind of sad to think this is their final resting place after giving service to our country,” Shaffer said.

“We are Americans. These are veterans of the Civil War. These are men that served under Abraham Lincoln.

“I would love to have this cleared up by Memorial Day out of respect for them. But sometimes things take time,” she said.
