Vernon Cemetery is located off Ben Lane Road, west of the intersection with OH-93 and County Road 14, in Vernon, Ohio (Decatur Township, Lawrence County). The coordinates are 38° 42' 58.71" N, 82° 38' 17.23" W.
Vernon Cemetery is also known as Vernon Furnace Cemetery and Decatur Cemetery. It was established in 1918, and it is still active. While there are plenty of nice marble, granite, and sandstone monuments, I was overwhelmed by the amount of unique folk grave markers. These homemade markers are my favorite ones to find. There were many decorated graves, including some older ones. The cemetery is very well maintained.
