Updated October 04. It's suprising that whole bushes can be removed! But sometimes it happens.
This is fairly easy and can be located mostly by car.
Start at the entrance to the "old" Port Clinton Cemetery. (Believe it or not, one of them is considered the new cemetery.) You will start at my "family" plot, which is a couple of "yards" from the entrance. If you've found Alvin, Helen and Elmer, you have the right family.
Drive to the right past the family (my family is on your left), and follow the gravel road when it turns left. Take the first left after you see the Cupps family. When you reach the War Memorial, take the circle to the right and go about 80% around the circle. When the driver is beside Patrick O'Brien, who served in WWI, turn right. You will pass Quisnos on your left.
At an intersection you can get out of the car and sit on a bench. (Is it in bad taste to say you should face so you can see a Body? Really, there is a family stone with the last name Body.) If you are facing the correct direction you should be able to see a Dixon family stone.
There should be a fence that meets at a 90 degree angle behind you and to the right. In front of you will be three bushes. Pick the one in the middle.
Sometimes this cemetery is pretty active. But the benches do not look well used. (At least they didn't when I first planted this box. The landscaping is in better shape now!)
