History: LUTHERAN CHURCH CEMETERY HISTORY From "History of
DeKalb County Cemeteries" by Dorothy A. Ditmars, April 18, 1924.
Butler Township St. John's Lutheran Cemetery
This cemetery dates back along about 1830. Many
of the older residents of the township were buried here. Some families
who were buried here were Miller's, Huffman's, Chisholm's, David's, and
A great many of the bodies have been removed to the
Cedar Chapel Cemetery nearby. The space was taken up by a state road.
However, there are still a few old gravestones there, which date back as
far as 1849, and 1854.
This cemetery, though tumbled and uncared for, was a
very picturesque old spot, and could the dead once have spoken would have
told many historical events.
