Gravestone Photographs

St. Paul Lutheran Cemetery was established at about the same time as the congregation of the same name was formed in Chuckery. The earliest years of death found are those of infant, Jakob W. Born, 1880 and toddler, Maggie Scheiderer, 1891. The cemetery is adjacent to Mitchell (Robinson) Cemetery, and is located on State Route 38, south of Marysville. It is very well kept and is still being used as a final resting place for members of St. Paul Lutheran Church. The cemetery was completely photographed on October 17, 2009 and is periodically updated.

Many of the early stones are inscribed in German; so I have provided a few translations of the most commonly used words, phrases, and abbreviations:
