|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Burial ground for the Saint John Evangelical Protestant Church organized by Georg Jacob Anderje and Andreas Christoph Stichling at the small community of Johannesburg, now known as Johns Hill at Wilder in Campbell County, which was served in its early days by Rev. Hermann Linstaedt. Some members of the congregation were buried at Johns Hill Cemetery, including Valentin Braun and Augustus Fleig. This congregation should not be confused with that of Saint John German Evangelical Church in Newport which was organized in 1847 and had as its first minister Rev. Friedrich B÷ttcher, and whose parishioners were usually interred at Evergreen Cemetery in Southgate.
At one time commonly referred to as Three Mile Licking Pike Cemetery it can be found on the hillside along the eastern edge of Johns Hill Road between Davis Landscaping and Saint Joseph Catholic Cemetery. Its southernmost boundary along the northwestern corner of the Catholic cemetery has blurred a little over the years. That area, now within the bounds of the current Catholic cemetery, retained at least one gravestone of a German Protestant notable as late as 1966, when Shelby L. Meyer, Sr. of Newport, Kentucky catalogued the grave markers that were still legible in both churchyards.
The Protestant cemetery sees no maintenance, is mostly overgrown with trees and undergrowth, and has suffered from decades of neglect and vandalism.
