West Richfield Cemetery Memorials

Aide To General George Washington Among Those Buried In Village

In the center back section of West Richfield Cemetery, a veteran’s memorial is prominently featured. The large monument displays a flag representing each branch of the US Armed Forces.

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.

The Village of Richfield manages both this and nearby Fairview Cemetery. Kotecki Family memorialists are certified to design monuments and memorials within both local cemeteries.
