Lord Tomb

This small stone structure barely 5' wide and 7' long bears the inscription "Rich'd Lord" above the doorway. Why his name is shortened is not known but here rests for eternity Richard and Anna Lord. This little building is an entrance way to an underground crypt, the size of which is not known but was once described as containing 3 caskets. The Lords had no children so who the third casket contains is not known. It may possibly be Richard's brother Samuel who came to Brooklyn Township in 1818 with Richard and their brother-in-law Josiah Barber. Lord & Barber founded Brooklyn Township as well as being instrumental in the founding of Ohio City.
