MONUMENTAL INSCRIPTIONS
AT GREENLAWN CEMETERY
CHILLICOTHE, OHIO

(ORIGINALLY CONTRIBUTED BY EDWARD C MILLS, D.D.S. OF COLUMBUS OHIO)
Removed from First Presbyterian Church Graveyard, corner of Sugar and Main Streets, Chillicothe, Ohio
The First Presbyterian Church graveyard, northeast corner of Main and Sugar Streets, Chillicothe, Ohio, was better known on the city records as the E 1/2 of out lot Number 95.  Dr Arthur Watts, who at that time, 1809, owned all the land east of Sugar Street, to the Scioto River, being more than 1000 acres, conveyed by deed this E 1/2 of out lot Number 95, to the trustees of the First Presbyterian Church of Chillicothe, Ohio, for burial purposes.  About 1870, the Scioto Valley Rail Road Company had the old graveyard condemned and sold and the bodies removed by friends, as far as possible.  The bodies that were unclaimed were remove to the Greenlawn Cemetery on the Station road by the railroad company.
The proceeds of the sale of the land, about $7500, was paid into the Common Please Court, where the heirs of Dr. Arthur Watts claimed the money, on the ground that having ceased to be used for burial purposes, it should revert to the heirs of the original owner.  The court, however, held otherwise and the money was paid to the trustees of the First Presbyterian Church.  Below are the inscriptions on the monuments removed to Greenlawn.
