Pictures and additional inscriptions taken by Pamela Smith, CCGS member, in July, 2007.  This cemetery is
in pretty bad shape.  A lot of the stones are buried very deep.  I was reluctant to dig too much as I was a
little skeptical in regard to the Indian “Sweet Lips” being buried at this site and the supposedly
weird happenings stated by Richard Crawford, a Clermont Historian.  I did not want to disturb any
sacred Indian burial ground. (see below).  A lot of broken stones.  I plan on making another trip in
the dark to witness this “haunting”.

Felicity's Smyrna Cemetery is haunted by an old Shawnee sorceress, “Sweet Lips”, who was killed by her tribe for
betraying them. There are stories of what appears to be an Indian woman roaming around the Smyrna Cemetery
searching for her people. She is reported to be seen on foggy moonlit nights bent over in grief hoping to make amends
with her people who left her behind more than 200 years ago. A bright gravestone can be viewed (glowing) in the darkest
nights where it is believed Sweet Lips is buried.
