Paint Memorial Cemetery

The OES visited Paint Memorial Cemetery on October 18, 2002, The cemetery, just off of Old Xenia Road, is also known as Paint Creek Cemetery, Paint Township Cemetery, and Withrow Cemetery. The original section of the cemetery was likely established in the 1820s, as those were the oldest tombstones we were able to find during our visit. Veterans of the Civil War and later wars are buried in the cemetery. A newer section was added to the cemetery in 1966 and is currently still in use. Many of the tombstones were still in good shape, but there were a few that had been weathered beyond recognition and/or broken.
