McNitt-Worden Cemetery-Town of Wheatfield (Shawnee) Located Lot #18, Town 13, Range 8
About 100 yards south of Mapleton Road on a slight knoll and about 100 yds east of intersection of Lockport Road. Found in summer of 1980 by children of Roger Drake, 3672 Lockport Road. Site examined Sept 27 1980. Only about 10 stones were legible. Plot is about 50x50 feet in size. Much damage to stones and appears that some digging has been done.
The McNitt and Worden families were inter related by marriage and the two particular branches left the area during the early 1860's. Some went to Michigan and others later migrated to California.
From an old 1838 map it was first owned by the McNitt family. The name again appears on an 1850 map but by 1860 it was owned by the Hittle family. The Hittle name appears again on the 1875 map and the 1908 map.
