Fredonia Cemetery is located on the east side of OH-661 (North Street Road), about one mile north of Chatham Road, in Fredonia, Ohio (McKean Township, Licking County). The coordinates are 40° 8' 2.77" N, 82° 31' 5" W.

Fredonia Cemetery is still active, but there are plenty of old gravestones to look at. The oldest gravestones are located towards the west side of the cemetery. Most are in excellent condition, but there are a few that have been damaged over the years. The cemetery is extremely well taken care of by the township.

While walking through the rows of gravestones, I noticed one that had a small wooden "information" display beside it. It marks the grave of Elwood G. English, better known as Woody English. He played for the Chicago Cubs from 1927 - 1936, then for the Brooklyn Dodgers from 1937 - 1938. For more information about Woody English, please see the following link:
