Local Revolutionary War era doctor Margaret "Peggy" Warne is also buried here. According to A Medical History of the County of Warren, published in 1890, Warne "was perhaps the most skillful, successful and widely known of any obstetrician in Warren County, in her day. She flourished very extensively about the time of the American Revolution, and held on very tenaciously to her particular branch of practice for many years after." [2]

A blue sign outside the cemetery on Cemetery Hill Road states that a Revolutionary War artillery site was located here, but there is no known documentation for this.
