Gravestone Photographs

Located on State Route 736, Trintiy Lutheran Cemetery was the second cemetery started by the St. John's Lutheran congregation.  When the congregation split, the property on which the cemetery is located went to Trinity Lutheran Church.  It is well kept and as recently as two years ago this tiny cemetery surrounded by farms was still an active cemetery. This cemetery has been completely photographed (Spring 2010); if you would like to have full sized copies of any of the photos of gravestones located in the cemetery, please, contact .

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:
