Known Burials in Philipps Cemetery Philipps Road, Granville, Ohio 43023
Edited for computer presentation in 1998 by Donald D. Young

The Philipps Cemetery is located on Philipps Road just inside the northeast corner of Granville Township. The first interment appears to have been that of Thomas Philipps in 1813 although it is said that there are 25 unmarked graves.

Most of the information presented here has been derived from a transcription of the grave markers done about 1900 by Ethel and Nellie Evans. Information about the few burials made after 1900 has been obtained from grave markers and printed obituaries, and a new reading of the grave markers by the editor has added an additional sixteen names to the list. The cemetery is well maintained by Granville Township, and the older sandstone markers are in average condition for their age. Several are completely unreadable. On a 28 Oct 1999 drive-by it was noted that the nice wooden sign pictured here is missing. Is it now a decoration in some recreation room or fancy theme restaurant?
