This cemetery is located on old U.S. 24 at the intersection of county roads 50N and 100W. It is also called the German Baptist Cemetery. The cemetery was recorded by the WJHS History Club in April of 1975. Supplemental genealogical information was provided by Lowell H. Beachler of Modesto, California and Lester Bennie of Albion, Indiana. Local tradition says that when U.S. 24 was being widened that the cemetery was cut into and that several bodies were removed.
