This cemetery is located on the west side of route 314, on an small parcel of land, next to road & south of St. John's Lutheran Church, south side of (CR97).
My readings are preliminary, there are additional memorials that I haven't read or photographed.
The most recent update to this page was made on 30 June, 2008.

This is a small church cemetery located directly across road (CR97)from St. Johnís Lutheran Church. Itís fairly well taken care of, with most memorials still standing. Some of the memorials have proven to be difficult to read simply due to weatherization and age of stones. It appears that the oldest burial is that of Christian Baker, whose marker states his burial being in 1834. Itís possible that I may find older readable inscriptions, as the church sign mentions this church was first established in 1818. This is a preliminary report and only a sampling, representing about half of the total memorials existing here. I have made no attempt to place the readings in sequence or proper rows. As always, I have tried to read each stone carefully, but due to the weatherization of some, they are nearly worn smooth and makes it hard to be 100% sure of transcriptions. I will be delighted to update this report with any information that you know improves upon these readings. My first readings of this cemetery made on 26 April, 2004. I have made photo documentation of each stone read in this report. Robert M. Sizelove, Sr. ©
