"I have attached an Excel file with a listing of inmates who are buried in the cemetery located at what is now called Riverview Nursing Home (formerly the Ottawa Co. Home and earlier the Ottawa Co. Infirmary).  The list was compiled in 1975 by the Ottawa Co. Genealogical Society."

We are very grateful to her for sharing this information.  PHL



Gravestone Inscriptions from Ottawa County Home Cemetery
Located in Salem Township, Ottawa County, Ohio
St. Rt. 1631/4 mile west of Co. Rd 104
This list was compiled in 1975 by the Ottawa Co. Genealogical Society

The Ottawa Co. Home was formerly the Ottawa County Infirmary

Any records kept prior to 1935 are missing and there are 20 burials for whom there is no name.
Stones were apparently used up through 1951 and then the practice was discontinued.
From 1937 - 1950 there were no burials according to the records and there are no stones that would indicate deaths during this period, so apparently there were no burials made during that time. Not all inmates who died at the county home were buried there.
