Records from this cemetery were gathered on 13 September 2002 by Amy E. Armstrong, however some disks used to store the photographs were damaged, and we lost a significant number of photographs.   A second visit to this cemetery was made on 09 July 2008 to photograph any new headstones, and to photograph the ones that were missing from the 2002 reading.  A handful of headstones were too badly weathered or broken, and therefore could not be deciphered.  Additional records have been added from the files of D.W. Garber, which were read in 1956.

Other Information ...

"Franklin Twp. residents have always been a church-going people.  Before churches were built, religious meetings were held in the log school houses and the cabin homes of the early settlers.  In time churches were built, one of the first being Zeiters' on the old State Road, four miles north of Mansfield.  The land upon which this church was built was donated by John Zeiters, and the deed is dated Dec. 30, 1834, and the building was locally known as "Zeiters' church".  It was used by the Lutherans and the Reformed congregations.  There is a cemetery on the church ground and the first interment was that of Henry Wainbranner, who died in 1833.  

The following are the names of some of the first members of this church:  Jacob Kunkleman, Abraham Harnaker, John Zeiters, Jr., J. Henry, Samuel Saltzgaber, John Stouzenberg, Jacob Zeiters, Jacob Clein, J.W. Sturgeon, Elias Keller, Jacob Heck, George Thorne, Jacob Fisher, John Kendall, William Wolf, Daniel Wolf, Peter Goldman, John Blecker, George Wolford, John Zeiters, Sr., Joel Keller, William Cloud, George Cassell, Thomas Russell and Jacob Bringman.  The church was a log building, which was afterwards supplanted by a brick structure.  And a few years ago this latter was taken down, and Zeiters' church is no more."  [Bellville Messenger:  26 March 1903, Vol. 11, No. 12]
