The Real Johnny Appleseed Is Buried In Spring Grove Cemetery, Cincinnati

Imagine my surprise one of my crew members, I think it was Kar, told me that Johnny Appleseed was buried at Spring Grove.  Once we found that out, we had to find his grave site.  It is very grand.  And unusual.  I

It was interesting to find the real story about John Chapman, born Sept 26, 1774 and died March 18, 1845.  He came to the frontier of Ohio and Indiana as a missionary.  He truly did plant apple seeds, helping the earth to bare fruit. 

Yet another reason to visit Spring Grove Cemetery in Cincinnati.  :)

An interesting read about Johnny is here on a Wikipedia page. I'll leave it up to you and your readers as to authenticity of the page facts.

Great photos, I had no idea there was a memorial for Johnny here. Thanks.
