Cemetery History

The Whitacre Farm cemetery probably was a private, family burying ground from the mid 1800s, containing tombstones dating from 1849 to 1875. The locations was on the 157 acre farm of Benjamin F. Whitacre on both the 1856 Wall Map and the 1867 Wall Map of Warren County. The 1875 Warren County Atlas shows the cemetery location was on the 117 acre farm of S. & C. Whitacre. The 1891 Atlas and the 1903 Atlas both have the location on a 135 acre farm of Chas. G. Whitacre. The 1932 Warren County Plat book shows the location on the 130 acre farm of C. G. Whitacre. None of these maps had anything on them to indicate that a cemetery was present at this site.

Little publicly available documentation has been found regarding the cemetery or who was buried there. The depression era W.P.A. Graves Registration Project documented the cemetery with a plat showing 2 rows of 4 graves but showed only one of the three Civil War soldiers buried there (Elijah Beeman). In 1956 and 1957 James E. Stubbs visited the cemetery and recorded the inscriptions of 12 tombstones visible at that time. The cemetery had not been included in any of the cemetery publications done by either the D.A.R. or the Warren County Genealogical Society although the Stubbs data was later added as an addendum to Warren County Cemetery Records, Volume 7.
