Graves in the cemetery
|NRHP Reference #||79002706|

- Cemetery. This is actually three adjacent but distinct cemeteries: Presbyterian Cemetery, Fulton Cemetery and Fulton Mechanick's Cemetery. The Presbytery of Cincinnati was awarded title to the Presbyterian Cemetery in 1970 by local courts in response to a suit for quiet title. The Court also charged the Presbytery with "use and care" of the two Fultons, but the Presbytery does not own the Fultons. Recorded deeds indicate the Fultons would be owned by the descendants of the original plot owners. The Presbyterian Cemetery dates to 1794 and is the final resting place of at least six Revolutionary War veterans, allegedly including Sgt. Willam Brown, the first man to receive a Purple Heart from George Washington. Brown was active in the area, although his headstone has not been found and confirming documentation does not exist. These cemeteries were severely vandalized and used as dumps since around 1900.
In 1999, Bart Rosenberg initiated a cleanup, preservation and restoration project which continues into 2012. The GPS coordinates given are within 25' of the entrance.
