This online index only lists the individual, death date (if known) and reference page. We are creating a master index of everyone who is buried in this county and their burial location to aid researchers. We are especially in need of people buried here who have no stones or whose stones no longer exist. If you have any of this information or if you have additional information for anyone who is buried in this cemetery, please email the Warren County Genealogical Society.


Cemetery Description

Cemetery Name

Shakers of Union Village

Variant Name(s) Shaker Family, North Family

The cemetery is listed as "East Shaker" in the GNIS system and elsewhere which we believe is incorrect. The cemetery is located immediately west of the site of the "North Family" at Union Village and a considerable distance from the site where the "East Family" of the Shakers was located.

The cemetery is located in Armco Park on the west side of State Route 741 about 1 mile north of State Route 63. The cemetery is on the east side of the service road heading south from the main entrance to the park in a large grassy enclosure surrounded by tall walnut trees.

PLEASE NOTE: Armco Park is a private facility. To visit the burial ground, you will first have to obtain permission at the main gate.

Cemetery History

This cemetery was visited in August 2004 by Katherine L. Rowland who writes, “Many inferences have been made in articles and lectures, to the effect that the Shakers did not put monuments on gravesites. However, there were, apparently, exceptions, at least toward the last years of Union Village. Five markers, complete with names, now stand in the old North Family Cemetery; in addition, there are two field stones without names; and one concrete base with marker missing.” The name East Shaker which this cemetery is sometimes called is a mistake from the WPA maps.
