|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The First Baptist Church is located at 1436 Herkimer Road in North Utica. This area was originally part of the Town of Deerfield until annexed by the City of Utica in August 1916. The First Baptist Church Society was founded in 1798 and the church built in 1811. Rev. Oded Eddy was the first pastor. In 1815 the cemetery adjoining the church was laid out on land given by Gen. John G. Weaver. His wife had died in 1811 and she was the first person buried there. The cemetery is very nicely maintained.
