Source:  Photograph Collection (2009), privately held by Janice Tracy

Coxburg Cemetery, in the Holmes County community of Coxburg, is the burial place for many of my Netherland ancestors, with the early spelling of Neatherland inscribed on at least one grave stone. Over a dozen other families with ties to the Neatherlin/Neatherland/Netherland family are also buried in this old cemetery, including deceased members of the Chisolm, Edwards, Gilmore, Harthcock, Killebrew, Payne, Pettus, Spell, Tolar, Trigleth, Wallis, Wigley, and Ziegler families.
