St Ambrose Parish is responsible for St Mary’s (a.k.a. J. A. Watterson) Cemetery which is located at:
140 Orchard Drive (Township Road 502) Little Hocking, OH 45742 GPS coordinates: N 39 o 16.388’ W 081 o 41.321’
The cemetery was opened in 1883. As with many old cemeteries, records are incomplete.
The cemetery committee formed in 2011 is working to maintain the cemetery, to reconstruct as much as possible records of past burials and deeds, and to maintain accurate records going forward. A new grid system was defined for the cemetery that makes identifying grave locations more accurate. New deeds are being issued to replace those issued under the old system.
The cemetery committee members are Jim Griffith (chairman), Charlie Wilsbacher, and Carl Klingenberg.
For more information or to purchase an interment deed, contact the Parish Secretary at: 740-423-7422 during regular office hours (M-W, F 10 am to 1 pm).
