The graves that were moved to what is now known as Blendon Central Cemetery include those of Francis Olmsted (d. 1828) and Jonathan Noble (d. 1832), who donated the land to establish the original cemetery. Today the gravestones stand as handsome examples of 19th century tablet markers found in central Ohio. The Noble gravestone features the familiar prepare-for-death epitaph.
died January 21, 1828;
in the 68 year of his age.
died March 28, 1832;
in the 57, year of his age.
Behold and see as you pass by,
As you are now so once was I,
As I am now so you must be,
Prepare for death and follow me.
