History information is some background and history about the location. This is meant to be a basic summary. Below the history records you will find sources in which you can click on to find out more information. There may be multiple history records per location.

We have had a hard time trying to find history for this cemetery on-line. We have on our list of tasks to some day travel to a local library to look up historical information for this location.

All that we have found is: Bowman Cemetery is located back a drive off the west side of Lusk Lock Road, north of County Road 419, outside Elkton, Ohio (Elkrun Township, Columbiana County). The coordinates are 40 45' 2.02" N, 80 39' 58.54" W.

Bowman Cemetery is small, and it is no longer active. There are many old gravestones, and the majority are in great condition. The township does an excellent job of maintaining the cemetery.

Stories are just that. Stories and personal accounts that have been reported about the location.

Bowman's Cemetery is in the middle of nowhere. If you are going to Lusk's Lock, Bowman's is on the road directly opposite of the lock. It is about one half mile back on the left hand side up in the woods.

It is said that a witch took children up there and killed them. She was caught and supposedly hanged from a nearby tree. There are no dates and no proof that this happened. However, the site is haunted. EVP and some great pics have been gotten up there. The general feeling to leave as soon as you get there hits nearly everyone. Many of the grave markers are simple wooden crosses. It is very small and very creepy.

Bowman's Cemetery in Rogers is supposed to be haunted. A witch supposedly killed children here and was hung from a big tree. This cemetery also contains a grave with a huge, deep crack in it that you can stick your entire arm down, if you're brave. It's located on Lusk Lock Road, far back in the woods.

It may sound crazy, but I have learned from personal experience that "Bumper Man" really does exist. When in Bowman's Cemetery between the times of dusk and through the night, you may encounter a person, or man, that my friends and relatives call "Bumper Man." Why do we call him that you ask? Because, when I was visiting Bowman's with my aunt, searching for spirits on one of our annual ghost hunts, I kept telling my aunt to go down a road. But my cousin started crying and screaming because she said I wouldn't want to go if I saw what came up and grabbed onto their bumper yesterday when they were here. As a result, my sister and I started calling him "Bumper Man."

When we went down to see what all of the hullabaloo was about, we made a mistake by getting out of the car and making noise. We heard something and ran to the car, and sped out of the cemetery part. We stopped above the road. We were joking about old Bumper Man, until we heard something behind the car. Sure enough, there he was, that bumper grabbin' psycho! I know this doesn't sound true, but you go down to the town of Rogers, and go to Bowman's, and I'll see you at the mechanics!
