OLIVE BRANCH Olive Branch Cemetery is in Jefferson Township section #2. Situated on the east bank of the beautiful Mississinewa River. It is difficult to locate but once found wins a place in the memory of the seeker as one of the outstandingly beautiful cemeteries in the county. That fact is substantiated by the two stories that follow. William Heal was a soldier in the War of 1812. He married Olive Carter some time before he came to Grant County in 1829. They were Methodists and were prominent in forming the class which became Olive Branch. This group of Methodists took this name to honor Mrs. Olive Carter Heal. The church has since been removed from this place. Anna Watson was the daughter of Lorenzo and Elizabeth Carroll Watson. They were prominent, early citizens of this county and are buried in this cemetery. Anna Watson married Dr. Eli M. Whitson in 1872. By prenuptial agreement he buried her in this cemetery which was near her old home and where her parents lay. Her grave is near the entrance and is guarded by a giant oak tree and a beautiful granite monument (as of 2004 the giant oak tree is no longer there). The above was written by the DAR in the 1940's. Cemetery read on April 22, 24, and 26, 2004 by Karen and Rick Marshall with help from her brother, Gary Keith. According to a trustee of the cemetery; Harold B. Storer, the first grave is that of Rebecca Littler who died Sept. 12, 1830 and shares a stone with her sister Jane who died Jan. 18, 1838. The stone is about 4th row back near center of cemetery and is a thin square stone approximately 1 1/2 ft. x 2 1/2 ft. It resembles a twin stone but they were born about 2 years apart acccording to dates on their stone. Mr Storer also told of the Jones family who had purchased a 30 ft. x 30 ft. section of land from his aunt, Sarah Milhollin and it attached to the southwest side of the cemetery. Then in 1896 his aunt donated the remainder of the acre of land to the cemetery and it is refered to as the new section. Thus the Jones family cemetery sits along the road between the old and new sections. The graves of George M. & Ida May Milhollin behind the Jones family cemetery section are marked by a hugh boulder with plaque bearing 'Milhollin' family name and two smaller boulders used as their headstones. These boulders were brought from their family farm to use as monuments. This cemetery appears to have been used from 1830 to the present day (2004). From the 1940's to 2004, 9 graves have been lost or at least not found at this time. The DAR listed 169 graves in the 1940's. We now have 420 graves listed, which is all that were found up to the present day. There were 9 marked Civil War Soldiers found here as well as 4 World War I and 1 from World War II. This is a tricky one to find. Almost all accounts say it is in Grant County but actually it lays in Delaware County with the only access to it in Grant County. Access can be gained only on Grant County Road 1050 E. I went to 1100 E. and 1100 S. then turned south on 1100 E. and went to 1175 S. where you need to turn back west to get to 1050 E. This 1050 E. appears at first to be a drive beside a farm house but it is actually a county road that dead ends alongside the cemetery. Childs stone at base of large tree behind the Jones Family Cemetery section is white stone with lamb and short tree trunk on top with inscriptions of: M. Sinclair from Ft. Wayne; F.
