St. John's Lutheran Cemetery, Darby Township, Union County, Ohio

Gravestone Photographs

Located on Kandel Road (AKA Kendall Road) just behind St. John's Lutheran Church (corner of State Route 736 and Kandel Road) this is the third cemetery to serve this congregation and it is still in use. The earliest of the three cemeteries has been abandoned and is located in a field across St Rt 736 about a quarter of a mile west. Trinity Lutheran Cemetery was the second and when two factions within the congregation split the property was deeded to the new congregation and renamed.

The cemetery has been completely photographed and is now online. It will be updated occasionally.

NOTE: Items that are underlined in black are the Webmaster's "best guess." Items found in brackets ( [ ] ) are either documented, i.e. death certificates, or were found in the published records.
