West Richfield Cemetery Memorials
Aide To General George Washington Among Those Buried In Village

Captain Elijah Welton is recognized within the monument. He served during the Revolutionary War as an aide to General George Washington. He worked as a baggage handler. The cemetery land was once his family homestead.
