The Baptist Church Cemetery is located on Hathaway Road in the Town of Saratoga, Saratoga County, New York State. It is near the intersection of Minnie Bennett Road with Hathaway Road, on a hill above the stone retaining wall. Sylvester's 1878 History of Saratoga County references this cemetery on page 276 as follows: "The old burial-ground on the Elihu Billings farm, with the old pines crowning the hill and waving beautifully over the dead, forms a picturesque spot." The inscriptions were copied in 1877 and recorded in Durkee's Epitaphs, Volume 4, pages 239-256. Additional inscriptions were copied in 1937 by Grace VanDerwerker. Her transcription notes "Charles Cramer moved church from near woods on his farm to place near State Road and is now the largest of this group of barns. Stated by Minnie Moe." "It was the First Baptist Church of Schuylerville, N.Y. and was founded by the Rev. Samuel Rogers." Mrs. VanDerwerker located the cemetery on the Moe Farm and additionally she noted many graves marked by field stones, without marks. It appears that the most recent burial in the Baptist Church Cemetery was in 1942. A few additional inscriptions are added to this list, compiled spring 2002, for a total of 154 names, plus many unknown.
