Cemetery notes and/or description:
ioneer Boatman Memorial Cemetery was begun in the late 1700's and was dedicated in 1976 to Barnerd Boatman, a Revolutionary War soldier, who served with General George Washington. It was formerly known as "The Old Cemetery", "Quaker Cemetery", "Old East Palestine Cemetery" and "The Presbyterian Cemetery". It had been abandoned for many years when Barnerd Boatman's grave was found. It was once the graveyard of "The Calvanistic Meeting House", the first church in East Palestine. There are about 194 known burials in the cemetery that are listed on one side of a permanent memorial marker. On the other side are names of 21 veterans of 4 wars: the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, the Mexican War and the Civil War. Burial records have not been found. The permanent marker was erected in 1990 by the American Legion, Post 31, of East Palestine. Restoration began in 1989 by Margaret Meek Travis and Kathryn Bauknecht. In 1994 the Boatman Cemetery Memorial Association was formed. Restoration continues as donations are received. The cemetery is listed on the Ohio Historic Inventory of Cemeteries.
