    On the "Adena" theme, this is the historical marker for Eden Baptist Church, in Pike County near the border with Ross, not far from Spruce Hill. It is the oldest interracial church in Ohio in continuous operation, still going -- I have attended services there. It was founded in conjunction with the Pee Pee Settlement of escaped southern slaves, who operated a network for slave liberation from this refuge.
    Three of the Jefferson-Hemmings children came to Ohio and were associated with this church, and Madison Hemmings, who first  revealed the Jefferson paternity, is buried in the church cemetery. Jefferson-Hemmings descendants remain in the congregation.
    The "Eden" name was inherited from Worthington's vision of racial tolerance and his use of "Adena" to symbolize that vision. The Barnes family of the "Barnes Works" were connected to the Pee Pee Settlement. They were personally close to Worthington and Jefferson and probably arranged for the settlement of Jefferson's children by Sally Hemmings here after Jefferson's death. They also founded the newspapers in Pike and Ross counties that first carried the Madison Hemmings story of Jefferson paternity.
