This cemetery is three miles north of Covington and two miles south of the Miami-Shelby County line. It is a couple of hundred yards west of State Route 48, on Union Church Road. The old Union Church once stood on the site. It was a joint Christian and Presbyterian Meetinghouse.

Although the first burial at this place was in 1822, it was not legally set aside as a cemetery until 1837. At that time it was turned over to the Newberry Township Trustees and placed in their care.

Deed: "Moses Mitchell and wife Isabella, to the inhabitants of Newberry Township, Miami Co., Ohio, dated 6th July 1837, recorded 13th Sept 1837, in Book 15 page 340, conveying to said Township, it's citizens and assigns forever as follows: Commencing on the South line of Section Six, Township eight, Range five East, and running North twelve poles on the
State Road leading from Cincinnati to St. Mary's, thence West thirteen poles, thence South twelve poles to the South Line of the Section, thence on said South line East, thirteen poles to the place of beginning, containing one acre."

On May 3rd 1884, the Township Trustees appointed a "Cemetery Board of Trustees" for the Union Church Cemetery." On August 21st 1885 the superintendent of the graveyard was ordered to procure suitable stones and place one at the head of each unmarked grave.

A public announcement was made for all interested citizens to meet at the cemetery at one o'clock, Friday, 28 Aug 1885, and assist the trustees in identifying the unmarked graves. This was done and those records are now reflected in this work by an * asterisk.

An asterisk * placed before any of these records indicates that there is no gravestone or only a fieldstone without markings, and that the record was taken from a book in The Newberry Township Office. If no asterisk is shown the information was taken directly from the stone on the grave. If the Township Record shows more than what is found on the gravestone the asterisk * will be found farther back in the record indicating what data was added to that found on the stone.

The information from the stones was copied directly from the stones on 10 Sept 1978 by Joseph H. Bosserman, and compared against the Township's Records during a few days that followed.
