Cemetery History

This is an active cemetery [ODRE #9821598-T] owned and operated by the Harlan Township Trustees. Its not known when the cemetery was first established but evidence of its existence can be seen on both the 1856 and 1867 Wall Maps of Warren County. The 1867 Map shows a Universalist Church located across the road from the cemetery to the west and perhaps it was originally a church cemetery. Beers History of Warren County does not appear to make any mention of the cemetery but in a passage regarding religious societies in Harlan Twp on page 679 it says "Other denominations have been organized, and held services in the township, among them the Presbyterian and Universalist churches, but they never succeeded in establishing a permanent society." The first known burial is for John Sharp who died in 1818.  Revolutionary War veterans include: William Simpson and Benjamin Baldwin.
