Hamilton County, Ohio Burial Records, Volume 11: Columbia Township


Columbia Township is the smallest section of unincorporated land left in Hamilton County, Ohio, and was first settled by pioneer families in 1788. Originally, Columbia covered a vast amount of territory bordering both Cincinnati and Miami Townships; over the years, since the granting of statehood in 1803, the township has been steadily reduced in size as more and more of its lands have been annexed by the city of Cincinnati.

This work compiles readings of headstones and markers for twenty-five Columbia Township cemeteries. Records are divided into sections by burial ground and are preceded by brief histories of the grounds and churches around which they are established.

Each entry consists of a complete reading of an inscription, including the deceased’s name, date of birth, date of death, and assorted information concerning family, military service, and in some cases the condition of markers themselves. Plats are included for six of the cemeteries as well as a map illustrating all of Hamilton County’s burial grounds. The grounds examined in this work include: St. Michael Catholic Cemetery, United Afro American Cemetery, Columbia Pioneer Baptist Churchyard, Pleasant Ridge Presbyterian Churchyard, Armstrong Chapel Methodist Churchyard, Fulton Mechanics Cemetery and others.
