33-29 Gowdy Associate Reformed Cemetery

Side A: Gowdy Cemetery was sold by James Gowdy to the Associate Reformed Church in 1820 for 50 cents. After Xenia’s Woodland Cemetery was chartered in 1845, Gowdy fell into disuse. Its last burial was James Gowdy in 1853. Gowdy Associate Reformed Cemetery is the resting place for many prominent citizens that brought mercantile and economic growth to Xenia and Greene County. Gravesites include: ➢ Revolutionary War veteran Robert Kendall (1751-1842); ➢ War of 1812 veterans James (1777-1853) and Robert Gowdy (1732-1831); ➢ James and Samuel Gowdy (1780-1851), who opened Xenia’s first permanent store in 1806.
