3 September 1849 Quit Claim Deed
Benjamin & Susana Morgan and John G. & Mary Ann Cornelius
Robert Hill, William Ramsey and John Monroe
for a
Public Place of Burial
Transcription contributed by Arne H Trelvik  19 August 2005
Warren County, Ohio, Deed Book 3, pages 353, Warren County Recorder, Lebanon, Ohio

This is an overgrown, inactive cemetery located within the city limits of Loveland in Hamilton Twp, Warren County, just north of the county line, north of the railroad right-of-way and just behind (south of) the building lots at the end of Sentry Hill Drive. Sentry Hill Drive is on the right (east) side of State Route 48 as you head north up the hill out of Loveland.

See footnotes regarding names and readings associated with this parcel. All of the burial lists include a John Hill and his consort, Elizabeth who died in 1803 and 1800 respectively. Both of these burials would predate both statehood and the formation of Warren County. The stones still exist, it is possibly one of the oldest known burial records of a Revolutionary War Soldier in Warren County.
Also included on the lists is at least one Civil War Veteran, Charles F Radcliffe, who served in Company D, 36th Indiana Infantry.

  • Names:
    This long abandoned cemetery has come to be known by a variety of names through the years, some placing the cemetery in Warren County and others placing it in Clermont county. The 1849 Warren County Deed refers to it as the Hill Graveyard. Using the names listed in "Ohio Cemeteries: 1803-2003" by the Ohio Genealogical Society, it is my belief that all of the following refer to this cemetery:
    • OGS #12238 - Hill-Wagoner Cemetery, Hamilton Twp, Warren County, Ohio
    • OGS #12259: Jones Paxton Cemetery, Hamilton Twp, Warren County, Ohio
    • OGS #12244: Ramsey Cemetery, Hamilton Twp, Warren County, Ohio
