Middletown's Historical Pioneer Cemetery

[click here for ==> Woodside Cemetery in Middletown, Ohio]


Location:

First Avenue & Richmond Street, Middletown, Ohio

This is a Butler County Cemetery that is now owned and operated by the city of Middletown. The cemetery is being photographed by Vivian Combs Moon who has graciously contibuted photos of some tombstones for those with connections to Warren County.

Vivian writes,
"The burial ledger is at the Middletown City Building. I'm not sure if the cemetery stones have been transcribed or not. I have found several stones that are not in the above buriel ledger. I'm transcribing the stones as I do the photos..I now have about 850 completed...This is a large cemetery...I think I will end up with about 2500 photos..."

Section 28, Lemon Twp, Butler County, OH

Location: Middletown Cemetery, Butler County, Ohio
Carol Conner Donovan writes,
"Tombstone for Robert Conner b. 16 Apr 1842, Oregonia, OH; d. 1 Jul 1914, Middletown, OH. Robert was a brother to my Great Grandfather, John Conner (1829-1908) and son of Jimmet Conner (1805-1881). Robert was in Co. A, 35th OVI, Civil War. He was a POW in Libby Prison, Richmond, VA. from Sep 1863 until Aug 1864. He suffered life-long lung damage & received permanent disability pension.
His wife's gravestone: Hannah Rogers-Conner; b. 3 Jun 1843 Waynesville, OH; d. 10 Jun 1925 Middletown, OH.
Hannah raised 8 children on Robert's paltry Pension of $20.00.
It appears that the family plot at Middletown Cemetery was at Section 28, Lemon Twp, where Robert, Hannah, John "Peg" & Frank have confirmed burial sites. Ida May and James J. "Jimmet" are also buried in Middletown Cemetery but their graves are not listed as being in the Conner Plot of Section 28."
