PETERSON CEMETERYThe cemetery is located on a privately owned farm located at 3328 New Burlington Rd. in Chester Twp.,
Clinton County, Ohio. Originally, the farm was owned by Archibald Peterson, who is buried here.
Prior to 1999 this cemetery had fallen into disrepair with overgrowth of trees and grass.
Restoration of the cemetery was accomplished from July to November, 1999. Total nunber of known
burials are 56. The work was performed by Charles Pierce and Charles Thomas, both of Xenia, Ohio.
oldest grave in the cemetery appears to be
that of John Stingley, who died in 1826.
newest grave is that of Sarah Stingley, who
died in 1901.
earliest birth of anyone in the cemetery
appears to be that of Mary E. Louderman, who was born
buried under the bases of other grave markers. Although they have a monument with both their names
on it, individual stones for Rosanna and Daniel Huffman were found beneath the base of the large
monument marking the grave of their son, Solomon Huffman. A stone was found for Ann M. Crites
although she is listed on the monument with her mother and father as “Anna Mary” Crites. These
stones have been placed flat on the ground beside the markers where these individuals are listed.
A large ornate gravestone was found with the name of Jesse Peterson, although he also shares a
later common marker with his wife, Eleanor. This stone, due to its size and beauty, was reset beside
the later marker. A large stone originally erected on the grave of Jacob Peterson was also found.
This stone was broken into many pieces and found beneath the monument of Job Crites. Extra stones
are also present for Jacob and Hannah Peterson.
