Search Mound Cemetery:

The Mound Cemetery was established in 1801 by the citizens
of Marietta, Ohio, to preserve an Ohio Hopewell burial mound dating from 100 BC to 500 AD, and provide for settler burials.
After the Revolutionary War, the area along the Ohio River and Marietta attracted many veterans rewarded with land grants.
General Rufus Putnam donated land for the cemetery. The cemetery is thought to have the largest number of Revolutionary War Officer burials, among other important Ohio River pioneer settlers and Northwest Territory politicians. Burials continue to today despite the limited space. The cemetery is open to the public, but parking is on the city streets surrounding the cemetery border.
