Inscription.  The Cedarville (name of immediate area - changed to Rockland, later to Belpre) Cemetery contains graves of 14 Revolutionary War soldiers - some of the graves have washed over the Ohio River bank when the level rose and left graves underwater. The property is maintained by the Belpre Township Trustees. Starting in the early 2000s, the Rotary Club of Belpre restored the property and remarked the graves.
 
Erected by Rotary Club of Belpre.
