Also known as Miller Cemetery, Stony Hill is practically invisible despite its location--on Medina Road in Bath Township.  It lies hidden down an embankment within a wooded area.  Genealogical and land records indicate that the cemetery was established sometime in 1833, although the earliest grave dates back to 1814. 

There is no easy access to this site--there are no side roads, driveways or sidewalks.  One must park on the shoulder of the highway and walk against traffic along the ditch to get here.


The cemetery is well-maintained by the township.  Although it is located next to a busy street, the grounds are quiet, peaceful, and pleasant.  

Yet, surprisingly, the photographs later developed from this trip contained some unusual  images. 

Another <yawn> orb.


Another interesting shot, this of what appears to be the image of an older man or woman (but definitely not the Virgin Mary) on the large tombstone on the right.  The marker belongs to Julia Kennedy, who died in 1859 at the age of 51, and her husband, Phillip, who died in 1875 at the age of 76.



A cluster of broken, illegible tombstones.



A deeply sad memorial of a brother and sister, Ira (right) and Irene Hopkins, who both died on the same day: June 25, 1861.  Brother Ira was 10 years-old.  His sister was almost 2 years-old.


The Miller Family.  From left to right:  N. Osburn Miller, who died in 1832 at the age of 20; Almira Miller, who died in 1845 at the age of 14; and Sarah F., who died in 1858 at the age of 77.  The sole tombstone behind them is that of Robert McMillen, who died in 1844 at the age of 48.
