Location: The County Home Cemetery is located on the north side of County Road J, east of County Road 14, in the village of Ottokee. (SW 1/4, Sec 36, T8N, R6E.)

History: The Fulton County seat of government, first located at Ottokee, moved to Wauseon in 1872. Two years later the former office buildings, along with additional acreage, became the county infirmary. A small burial ground was set aside for deceased inmates who had neither family nor means to provide for burial. No grave markers are found at this cemetery and no separate record of burial has been located. The old infirmary or county home ledgers now kept at Detwiler Manor, Wauseon, reveal that eight former inmates of the home are likely buried at this location. It is possible that others are buried there.
