Dugan Ridge Cemetery is located at the end of TR-17 outside Shawnee, Ohio (Coal Township, Perry County). The coordinates are 39° 34' 14.9" N, 82° 9' 56.76" W.
Dugan Ridge Cemetery is also known as Union Church Cemetery. It is small, and it is no longer active. Township Road 17 is a narrow gravel/dirt road that goes through the Wayne National Forest. There are a few houses located at the beginning of the road, but then all you see for about two miles are trees! The road ends, and you'll see the cemetery on your right. As I was driving to it, I was a little worried that it might be terribly vandalized due to it's desolate location. However, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that it is still very well taken care of. There are a few broken gravestones, but the majority are in great condition. It's definitely an interesting cemetery to visit.
Many thanks to Brenda Masterson for telling me about this cemetery, and for giving me FANTASTIC directions to it!
