About Hester A. Campbell



The Mount Holly cemetery started as a burial ground on the farm of John Campbell and later became the "Old Bethel Cemetery in Mount Holly". At one time there was a Methodist Church adjacent to the graveyard but no signs of the church building remain. The cemetery is set back off the road surrounded by farmland. The cemetery was "restored" in the mid 1920s. [See page 25 of "Warren County, Ohio Revolutionary Soldiers" by Mary M. Everhart]

Cemetery readings list about 130 burials dating from 1818 through 1897. The first known burial in the cemetery was that of Hester Clark Campbell in 1818.
