Fritts/Fritz Cemetery in Fayetteville, Perry Township, Ohio

+4 votes
Hi Everyone,

I just joined the Guild of One-Name Studies to work with and learn from  professionals who have published One-Name Studies.  My goal is to eventually publish my Fritz One-Name Study.   

One of the Guild members just wrote me that she came across Fritz in her research in Brown County, Ohio.  She said that there is a Fritts/Fritz Cemetery located there in Fayetteville, Perry Township, which is slowly disappearing as the years pass.  Many cholera victims of 1850/1851 are buried there.  She will be researching there in April and if I wanted any photos to let her know.

I have adopted a lot of Fritz profiles that I need to look thru to see if they could be buried there.

If anyone has someone buried there and wants a photo, please let me know and I will have Yolanda take it for you.

Ohhhh very interesting! My dad's paternal family has deep roots in Brown County -- many still living there, so I do a lot of research in that area. I don't recall running into anyone with the Fritz surname in my tree, but I probably just haven't shaken that branch hard enough yet.

Great, If you find that you have some Fritz ancestors let me know.

Will do! Also, if you are on Facebook there is a great Brown County, Ohio Genealogy group:

Two of the ladies that work at the genealogical society are in the group and are super helpful! Last year from a random comment on a post from another member in the group I was able to bust down a brickwall that I had been looking into for a few years. Super exciting day!

for the information Penny

You're welcome!
