History of the cemetery:
"Directly across from the old home of John Dever Guthery, Sr., who was the second son of Joseph and Hannah Dever Guthery, in Bowling Green township, Marion County, Ohio, is an old cemetery - the Guthery Cemetery, where many Gutherys and their kin lie. Once, just adjoining this cemetery, a church stood, and next to it a store, and on down the line other buildings, making a village that was called Parr Town. It did not flourish because, when LaRue was settled with its railroad and outlet to markets, Parr Town died utterly. But once it was center for township trade."
