About the Cemetery
The Bucyrus Cemetery is located next to the historic old Bucyrus school, in front of the baseball field and the BNSF railroad that
runs through the heart of Bucyrus. The only access to the ball field is through the cemetery.
Cemetery usage, based on the gravestone inscriptions, averaged 20 per decade from the 1890s through the 1920s and then steadily
increased to a peak of 59 in the 1970s, and has declined slightly since.
The oldest legible gravestone memorializes J M Allen,
Aug. 29, 1807- Dec 21, 1872. Allen and his wife Rebecca J, Feb. 14, 1813 - July 18, 1896 have the earliest birth dates etched in stone.
The oldest people, calculated from the dates on the stones, are G. Harold Stuteville, 1903 - 2002, and William N. Kirby, 1856 - 1955,
approximately 99 yrs. old. The oldest female was Hazel N Cusey, 1895 - 1993, approximately 98 yrs. old.

This is a complete transcription by reading and photographing the gravestones. Several names appear in the Cemeteries
of Miami County, Vol II that correlate to partially weathered stones, however there is not enough evidence or stone remains
to tie the rest. Those names, as well as the unidentifiable stones, are included in this transcription.
Photos available upon request.
This cemetery is not mowed regularly and the grass gets very tall. The cemetery appears to be little cared for and unkempt.
There is evidence of missing stones, and several stones are partially or totally obliterated by erosion.
