from Nick Sheedy


G. W. Houpt's body is buried in Chatfield, Crawford Co., OH, likely at the Chatfield Village Cemetery. The monument at George's grave ("G.W. Houpt") was apparently damaged and possibly removed. My grandfather, Thomas Hamilton "Ham" Houpt of Shelby, OH, remembered seeing the stone before, but when he visited the cemetery with his son, Thomas H. Houpt II, in the 1990s, they were unable to locate the stone. Ham Houpt thought it might have been taken to be repaired, and perhaps was in the possession of his cousin, Jack Haupt of Marion, OH, who was the last proprietor of the Houpt/Haupt Monumental Works, but Jack told me (in 2004) that he didn't know anything about it. George Washington Houpt's grave is not found in the published cemetery records of Crawford County.
