Corpus Christi Cemetery


Research done by Keith Geiman

The Corpus Christi Church began in 1844 in Newport and by 1848, the parish had its own cemetery called Corpus Christi Cemetery near 3 Mile Creek and the Licking River near Frederick's Landing.  There are still a few headstones on site, but it is closed to the public. An account by the Rev Paul E Ryan in the book,
History of the Diocese of Covington, Kentucky, on the Occasion of the Centenary of the Diocese, 1853-1953

says that the site was in an unfavorable location (because of its closeness to the Licking River and constant flooding) and because of that the search for a new parish cemetery started.  In 1869 the 20 acre site Corpus Christi selected for the new cemetery was dedicated as St. Joseph Cemetery and is located next to what is now St. John the Baptist Catholic Church at Licking Pike and Johns Hill Road in Wilder.  Burials from Corpus Christi Cemetery at 3 Mile Creek and St. Joseph's Cemetery in Newport were moved to the new cemetery. For a listing for burials in the St. Joseph Cemetery see the Cemeteries Index.

Records of the original Corpus Christi Cemetery include these known to have been moved to St. Joseph Cemetery.
