Old St. John's Lutheran Cemetery is located in a field north of State Route 736 between St. John's Lutheran Church at Kandel Road and State Route 38 (.3 mile west of Kandel Rd and 1.7 miles east of State Route 38) in the northern part of the township. It is abandoned and is not maintained. Some of the earliest German Lutheran settlers in this part of the county are buried in this cemetery and many of their descendants can be found buried in the present St. John's Lutheran Cemetery and Trinity Lutheran Cemetery. Some of the surnames once found in the cemetery are:  Beutel, Bischoff, Boehm, Bunsold, Eirich, Ell, Goess, Gunderman, Hegendorfer, Rausch, Rupprecht, Scheiderer, Vandereau, and Zwerner. We photographed all the stones that could be found on November 3, 2011. For translations of German terms see: St. John's Lutheran Cemetery.
