Sheep Pen Cemetery Update: Gravestones of William Irwin Sr., Margaret Irwin, and Julia Ann Yohn are the Latest to Be Restored

Sharing the latest photographs from Scott Andersen of cleaned, repaired, and reset gravestones at Sheep Pen Cemetery, Madison Twp., Highland County, Ohio.  

Click on their names to read more about them on their "Find A Grave" memorials. 

For the first time in a long time, the gravestones of William Irwin, Sr. and his wife, Margaret McCormick Irwin, are standing upright next to each other and supported within their bases.  


The small broken marker for Julia Ann (Aber) Yohn - wife of William, has been cleaned, and placed in its base.  A section of the upper left corner of the stone that had broken off years ago has progressively become ill-shaped.  

Thanking Scott Andersen for all of the additional extensive restoration work that has brought these fragile grave markers back to their rightful and respectful presence in the Sheep Pen Cemetery.
