ST. JOHN’S LUTHERAN CEMETERY

St. John cemetery lies behind the St. John Lutheran church and parsonage located on West Keiser Road across the road from Eberhard Lutheran church and cemetery. The location of the St. John’s church has caused more than a little cause for discussion as to which township it lies. The lack of a road to mark the Washington-Columbia township line has led to considerable debate. It seems that the line runs almost across the parsonage. It has been determined that the church for the most part does lie in Washington township.

A number of the stones are missing some of which are known because of records of the church. The rows run north and south and the lots numbered in the church records. The back of the cemetery contains older stones somewhat scattered as if there are several missing. Many of the stones particularly the back area are in German.

Prior to this reading done by Fern Tripcony in 1997 Marjorie Kite had read them in the early 1960’s The entries with an N in the row column are ones read by Mrs Kite of which there is no longer record.
