Maple Grove Cemetery is located on Township Road 462, just south of OH-4, in Mechanicsburg, Ohio (Goshen Township, Champaign County). The coordinates are 40° 3' 36.55" N, 83° 33' 55.74" W.

Maple Grove Cemetery is very large, and it is still active. There are many old gravestones, including those of Prince William Alden (who, legend has it, was an Indian Prince who is buried with his wife, mistress, children, and butler) and Addision White (a slave whose freedom was purchased by the town). The majority of the gravestones are still in excellent condition, and the grounds are very well maintained.

Many thanks to Tammy Ankrom for showing me around this cemetery, and for sharing information about some of the notable graves!
