Inscription.  Philip Gatch, 1751 – 1834, established the cemetery on his farm when his wife Elizabeth died in 1811. Originally this was a site of a Hopewell Indian mound building culture. In his will, Gatch gave his sons discretion to open the cemetery to non-family members. Located here is the burial site of John M. Pattison, 43rd governor of Ohio and a memorial to Adjutant-general Henry Clark Corbin, 1842-1909. In 1982 ownership of the cemetery was transferred from Miami Township to the City of Milford.
 
Erected 2003 by Clermont County Bicentennial Commission.
