Columbia Baptist Cemetery
Inscriptions by Mrs Charles W. Baker in 1904
Contributed by Beth Graves, March 2000
The Columbia Baptist Church was organized on 30 Jan 1790.  It was the first Protestant Church in the Northwest Territory. Members were:  Benj. Davis, Mary Davis, John Ferris, Elizabeth Ferris, Jonah Reynolds, Amy Reynolds, John S Gano, Thomas C. Wade, and Isaac Ferris, deacon.  Mrs. Baker found the deed to the cemetery recorded 14 Feb 1806 from Benj. Stites and his wife Hannah to John Stites Gano, Isaac Ferris Sr., and Elijah Stites, on behalf of the Baptist denomination or congregation of the township of Columbia, Hamilton County, OH for sum of $100

<>This copy of inscriptions was made by Mrs Charles W. Baker in 1904.  There were no headstones at the time for Maj. Benj. Stites, only the foundation for the stone.  

Columbia is now part of Cincinnati and the Park Board has the care of this small pioneer cemetery which is near Lunken Airport.
