Congress Green Cemetery

— Two Subjects, One Marker —

side A
Judge John Cleves Symmes of New Jersey
purchased a huge tract of land "between the Miamis"
(rivers) stretching from the Ohio River to the
Greenville Treaty Line that became known as the
Miami Purchase. Symmes helped found the town
of North Bend. His daughter, Anna Symmes, married
William Henry Harrison, later President of the United
States. John Cleves Symmes is buried in the
Harrison-Symmes plot in this cemetery.

side B
Originally belonging to the William Henry Harrison
family, this cemetery was known as "The Pasture
Graveyard" until the Civil War era. It became
the final resting place of many members of the
Harrison and Symmes families as well as other
early settlers to the North Bend area. It was in
use until 1884 when Maple Grove Cemetery
opened as the official township cemetery.
