Sorry for the poor picture, it was dark.

A bit of advice, if you go after dark like I did, take a friend, a pistol, or in my case, both. We did not have any problems, just not where I would want to be after dark by myself.

Ah crap. I took a pic of the wrong one. The right one was behind me when I took this. Guess I'll go back tomorrow if someone else doesn't

I know I was in the right town, just can't find the right monument. There's about a dozen that are close but still not the right one.

This has been a MONUMENTAL screw up! Howcutt you get it wrong? Guess you Will have to try again. Maybe someone else will have some Academy training to help them head East and find it... (I'll stop now before I get hurt!)

After I got home from looking last night I figured out exactly where it is, which is about 100 yards from where I was looking. It's hard to see on Google's satellite maps and no street view of it. I found it on Bing's bird's eye view maps.

I'm guessing you already have the map location Backwoods? In Canton on East Academy St between Lyon St and Dudley St.

I don't have the exact fix, but I can stick a random marker in the middle of the cemetery if no one has GPS.
