Unity Cemetery, Deerfield Township, Warren County, Ohio

Our thanks to Warren County Genealogical Society volunteer, Chuck Griffen, who has photographed all extant tombstones at the Unity Cemetery on Bethany Road in Deerfield Township.
The results of his efforts have been added to the Warren County OHGenWeb Project at
http://www.rootsweb.com/~ohwarren/Cemetery/unity/index.htm

Beers History of Warren County [page 642] says the following about this cemetery, “One of the oldest burying-grounds was the now unused part of the Unity School lot. It was set apart about the year 1800, when the first bodies were buried there.”

Chuck was able to locate the tombstones for 48 of the 64 entries found in Warren County, Ohio Cemetery Records, Volume 6
http://www.co.warren.oh.us/genealogy/publications.htm#Cemetery
and the results of his efforts will be included in a future update of Volume 6.

Chuck notes that a number of stones are still in the wooded perimeter of the cemetery awaiting “rescue”. If you have any old photos of this cemetery, or know of additional burials, please consider sharing with us.
