Yorkshire, Ohio: Annie Oakley Visited This Graveyard

The Wild West celebrity was buried seven miles away in another graveyard, but she visited this once when she was alive -- an event deemed worthy of a modern photo-etched monument.

Mendenhall Cemetery

8381 North Star Fort Loramie Rd, Yorkshire, OH
Mendenhall Cemetery. From US-127 in North Star, turn east at the stoplight onto Star Rd/OH-18. Drive about four miles. Just as you come into Yorkshire, you'll see a sign on the right for Mendenhall Cemetery. Drive south to the cemetery at the end of the road. The black granite monument is on the south end of the cemetery; its newness is easy to spot in this small, old graveyard.

Annie Oakley Visited This Graveyard

The road to the graveyard is narrow gravel. It looks like a farmer's access path, but keep going. Annie Oakley's father and sisters are in one plot; her mother is across the way. There are a few other interesting tombstones, such as an eagle on a tall tree trunk.

Graveyard is far back from the road, so don't think you missed it. Follow the sign.

The "Imagine The Legendary Annie Oakley" monument is a strange fame-by-proxy point-of-interest for a family plot otherwise fated to be forgotten. Annie is buried seven miles from this spot.
