Olin Cemetery




Olin Cemetery is located about 5 miles South of the intersection of Hwys 82 and 13 in Adams County, WI.
Located on the East side of Highway 13, it stands out from the wooded or grassy areas that surround it.
The area that it covers is a slight slope, with the lowest part being by the front fence (near the highway).
The cemetery itself appears to be divided by the barely-there drive, putting the older 2/3 to the South and the newer 1/3 to the North.
There are a number of unmarked graves, and a number of stones that have succumbed to the elements and time.
Those marked with an * before the stone are persons I have more information on - just email me!

view of "the big tree" in the Southern section, near rows 2-4.


The rows start in the NW corner (lower left of sketch) and go towards the South.
The persons responsible for making rows in this particular cemetery did their job in the dark I think.
As you can see, there are not exactly definate rows.
