The Locust Grove Cemetery in Twinsburg, Ohio

The historic Locust Grove Cemetery is located in Twinsburg, which is approximately 20 miles southeast of Cleveland, Ohio.  The city is known for hosting Twins Day, a time when twins from all over the world gather to celebrate each summer.  It is also the final resting place of identical twins Moses and Aaron Wilcox, who attracted new settlers to the town by selling parcels of land in the area. The brothers were business partners who married sisters, and they had the same number of children.  Eventually they contracted the same fatal illness and died within hours of each other.  Moses and Aaron are both buried at the gravesite.
