PROJECT BACKGROUND

The township trustees partnered with Miami University professor, Dr. Robbyn Abbitt, and her students to produce the map. The students conducted the research and produced the map, at no cost to the township. This is a work in progress and after the Darrtown cemetery is completed, the focus will shift to the Collinsville cemetery.

On September 13, 2019, Mollie Hansel, Milford Township Fiscal Officer, provided the following description of the "Cemetery Mapping Project" that was developed cooperatively by the Milford Township Trustees and the Miami University Geospatial Analysis Center (GAC) in the Department of Geography.

 

"Professor Robbyn Abbitt has taken our request to map out the Milford Township Cemeteries for a class she teaches at Miami.  This project has taken two semesters to complete just the Darrtown Cemetery.  This current semester we will work out the bugs and move on to Collinsville Cemetery.

 

The students who have created this website are:  Brody Betsch, Elizabeth Foreman, Connor McDonald, Ryan Seim, Austin Alvarez, Caitlin Buchheim, Patrick Collins, Emma Farahay and Thomas Gerris.

 

They have worked very hard on this project and we appreciate all that they have done!!"
