The OES visited Thomas Seeds Cemetery on October 18, 2002. Established in 1855, Thomas Seeds Cemetery is located just off of Hoover Road in Jackson Township of Franklin County. Even though the official founding was in 1855, there were several tombstones, many of them children, who were buried before the cemetery was founded...some as early as 1812. Veterans of both the War of 1812 and the Civil War were found buried here. Most dates on the tombstones ranged from the mid-1800s to early-1900s. Most of the markers were in decent shape, but others had been weathered or broken beyond repair. Jackson Township trustees, who care for the cemetery, have repaired and replaced some gravestones, but some of those were not placed back in their original location.
