This is the genealogy webpages of Rebecca Bangsund. There's a photo of the James L. Henthorn, III, grave at Miller Cemetery in Monroe county, Ohio.

In an 11 October 2003 message Rebecca wrote:
"It is the stone of James L. Henthorn. Also known as James Henthorn III. He is buried next to Jacob Miller and wife, Rebecca Martin Miller. This is in the Miller Cemetery in Bethel Township, Monroe County, Ohio. The death date on the stone is September 11, 1859.

The picture was taken by Ken and Rebecca Bangsund in May 2003. To get to the cemetery we had to go to the John Burkhart farm, walk through a horse pasture behind the house, then climb a hillside. The cemetery had been cleaned by the Miller family a year earlier but the brush grows up very quickly here and there is no road to it. There are perhaps 80 other burial sites here. Most of the stones have fallen and are crumbling. Washington Township is very close to Bethel Township so families could possibly live in either one."
