Harlan Township, Warren County, Ohio
The Runyan Cemetery is an old family cemetery that originally
was located on the 88 acre farm of Henry Runyan, son of William
Runyan. It is now an overgrown 1/2 acre landlocked parcel surrounded
by large home sites and vacant land on the southeast side of the village
of Butlerville. The entrance is marked by two very large trees with
metal crosses nailed to them. Many stones were broken or falling over
when the cemetery was visited in 2009.
There are 27 known burials in this cemetery with surnames of Runyan,
Flomerfelt, Hibbetts, Hicks, Morsbach, Brilling, and Hendricks. The
earliest known burial in 1842 was Eleanor Jane Runyan, the 12 day old
infant of E. L. & C. Runyan. The last known burial was that of Lillian
D. Morsbach in 1932. A neighbor said at one time he remembered seeing
a pile of gravestones in the cemetery. These were not found in November
- From State Route 132 (Main Street) in Butlerville, go southeast on
2nd Street to the dead end. The cemetery is about 200 feet further southeast
across private property from the dead end of 2nd Street.
Alternately, from the dwelling at 8428 Morrow-Woodville Road (CR 24),
go northeast about 300 feet, again through private property.
