Stroh Cemetery
 
Location:  This private cemetery is located in Section 15 of Union Township.  It lays on the west side of County Road 39 between roads 34 and 38.  It is back in the woods [off the road aways].  Information from John Scoville.  In July of 2012, we personally found the cemetery.  There is a driveway to a private home that is actually an easement to the cemetery.  It is always good to ask permission to go back. DO NOT drive on the grass, due to septic system.  Please stay on drive.





History:
From "History of DeKalb County Cemeteries" by Dorothy A. Ditmars, April 18, 1924.
    This cemetery is located on the Stroh farm, one mile east, and two miles south of Waterloo.
