Wolf Creek Cemetery

Kenton, Hardin County , Ohio, USA


Prior to the spring of 1879, this township had no cemetery or regularly established burial-place, and the dead were principally interred at Kenton and in Taylor Creek Township. But, in March, 1879. there was formed an association of ten persons, as follows: P. F. Latimer, J. P. Richard, John Bales, Lewis Dunson, Z. O. Hatcher, E. S. Buttler. M. D. L. Mentzer, John C. Johnson, Jacob Everhart and William Mentzer, who were organized under the laws regulating such associations. and purchased of Samuel Mentzer one acre and a half of ground, which was properly fenced and laid out into lots, walks and driveways, and the whole well ditched, tiled and drained. The lots were rapidly sold, and in the spring of 1882 it was found necessary to enlarge the grounds, and the association purchased of the said Samuel Mentzer three and one-half acres more, adjoining the first purchase; so that the cemetery now contains five acres, and is now one of the prettiest of rural cemeteries.
