Picture of Shira Cemetery


Shira Cemetery is located in Somerset Township, approximately 10 miles northeast of Princeton. From Princeton, go east on highway 136 to Ravanna, then north on route W three and 1/2 miles to route M. West (left) on route M about one mile to the first gravel road to the right (north). Go north two and 1/2 miles to the "T" in the road. The road to the right is dirt. Unfortunately, it is the only way to the cemetery. The cemetery is approximately 1/2 mile east of the intersection and about 300 yards south of the road in the middle of a large pasture. It is, however, surrounded by a new fence and gate, and appears to be very well maintained.
This survey was conducted by Phil & Kathi Stewart on April 14, 2003.
