Union Cemetery is located on the east side of OH-9 in Saint Clairsville, Ohio (Richland Township, Belmont County). The coordinates are 40° 5' 8.89" N, 80° 54' 20.25" W.

Union Cemetery is very large, and it is still active. There are many old, interesting gravestones and most are in great condition. This cemetery is home to my favorite gravestone - one that belongs to a woman who died in 1856. It's common to see portraits on gravestones, but it is uncommon to find one with a daguerreotype like the one on this one! Daguerreotypes are one of the first forms of photography, and they can be difficult to find. The cemetery is very well maintained.

Many thanks to Tim Fox and Justin Huntsman for visiting this cemetery with me!
