The Bayless Private Cemetery is owned by Mr. & Mrs. Keith Saxton.  They keep the cemetery trimmed and care for and are very nice.  There are two tombstones that read “Will” and “Amelia.”  In Robert Richardson’s book, “A Time and Place in Ohio,” on page 197, he states that they are “Probably two slaves from Baltimore.”
