The Windsor Township Baptist Association was organized January in
1818 by Elder William Davis with 35 members who met in homes, barns
and schoolhouses. At the death of the six-year-old granddaughter of
Samuel and Tabitha Davis Henery, this plot by the river was laid out
for a church yard and deeded by John Henery in 1837. In 1838 a brick
church was built at the cost of $1,000. It served this community until
the road and church were destroyed by the flood of 1913. More then 50
men from this area served in the Civil War. Twenty-six veterans are buried
here, four of the War of 1812, as well as William Davis veteran of the American
Revolution; Obadiah Brokaw, founder of Big Bottom State Memorial; and
Captain Isaac Newton Hook, river pilot at the age of ten and U.S. master
of inland navigation, 1860-1873, who ran supplies on the Tennessee and
Cumberland rivers for the Union Army. At Captain Hook's death in 1906 the steamers Valley Gem, Zanesville and Sonoma from Marietta, in his honor
landed passengers at the church here for his funeral, "the largest ever
held in the Muskingum Valley." "The Lord and the River giveth and then
taketh away."
