New Hope Cemetery platted as Cemetery #71 by the WPA Veteran Graves Registration Project.

The plat only lists one Civil War Soldier, David Whitacre but no gravestone is now found and the details of his service has not been confirmed. "Civil War Soldiers Buried in Warren County, Ohio" by Sue Frary lists him as a veteran of the 17th OVI.  The Roster for the 17th OVI does contain a David S. Whitacre who served in Co E of the 17th OVI, was Killed at Resaca, Georgia on 14 May 1864 and buried at Chattanooga, Tennessee National Cemetery.  He was not found in the US Dept of Veteran Affairs, Nationwide Gravesite Locator  and perhaps he was "brought home"

Other gravestones for Civil War soldiers note in the cemetery are for David Watkins & John Nelson E. Whitacre

Lynne Sitkiewicz emails 11 Jul 2014:
I have copies of his military records from the National Archives (he’s my 2nd great grandfather) and there are records from the Clinton County Infirmary that he is buried there. He died July 4, 1903. I just had his death date inscribed on his headstone. The record was in his pension file.
By the way, John Nelson (he went by both names throughout all the paperwork and I think the E stands for Eden (his fathers name), but I can't find any documentation to tell me for sure. Anyway, he was shot twice in the chest at the end of the war, in Tennessee, and still had one of the musket balls inside him when he died. He had 3 holes in his chest, one where the other ball came in and out and the other one was never removed from what I make out. He was pretty much an invalid after the war and I can see why.
