History and Genealogy


Tony's Nose Cemetery
Bath Township



While Sergeant William Chenowith who lies buried at Tony's Nose Cemetery was never a resident of Allen Counuty, his name appears on the tax duplicates; he was born in Virginia but enlisted in Washington's army in Pennsylvania; in 1831 he entered land in Allen County; one record says William Chenowith was in Bath Township in 1827-8, and that he erected a cabin on the bank of Lost Creek; a son, John Cheno-with, lived on the land now owned and utilized by the City of Lima as part of its waterworks system; this land was acquired from members of the Mumaugh family who are lineally descended from Sergeant Cheno-with. Tony's Nose Cemetery is so inaccessible that many people have never seen the marker at the grave, procured from the United States Government by Lima Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution. The inscription: "Sergeant William Chenowith; War 1776," is the designation; it was placed there by Isaac H. Mumaugh and sons, and Dr. Shelby Mumaugh. Sergeant Chenowith died in 1838, and not until 1913 was this marker placed at his grave; it is said that when he was eighty years old he could split 100 rails a day; he had come on horseback from Pennsylvania, and was a guest in the home of his son, John Cheno-with; he was buried at Tony's Nose, which is now almost wholly aban-doned as a place of burial; this grave is one of the patriotic shrines in Allen County. While there was no unveiling ceremony, this is the only government marker at the grave of a Revolutionary soldier within the bounds of Allen County; it seems like "hallowed ground" at Tony's Nose.
