Job's Cemetery is located on the west side of Amanda-Northern Road, about ¼ mile south of Busey Road, outside Pickerington, Ohio (Violet Township, Fairfield County). The coordinates are 39° 51' 16.63" N, 82° 45' 28.54" W.

Saint Job's (or Saint Hiob's) German Reformed and Evangelical Lutheran Church used to stand next to this cemetery, but it was destroyed many years ago. The cemetery still remains, but it's not the easiest to find since a new housing development is being built around it. Also, Amanda Northern Road is now closed at Busey, so you'll have to walk at least ¼ mile to get to it. But let me assure you, it's definitely worth the walk!

Job's Cemetery is very well taken care of, although there are quite a few broken gravestones due to age and weathering. You can still see the old church's cornerstone at the front of the cemetery. There are plenty of old, interesting gravestones to look at too.

A big thanks to my friend and coworker Heather Theado for telling me about this cemetery! Since Amanda-Northern Road is closed, I probably wouldn't have tried to find this cemetery had she not told me it was there and still accessible. I really do appreciate her help!
