Globe Mills (St. Peter's or Sieber's Union Church) Cemetery

Location:

Meiser, southwest corner of Route 522 and White Top Road, south of Globe Mills, Middlecreek Township

History:

St. Peter's Lutheran and Reformed Church at Globe Mills was formerly known as Zieber's Church, and was so named in honor of Daniel Zieber who settled in the vicinity about 1816, and who donated much of his money and services to the building of a church at that place....The building was erected in 1840 and was remodeled in 1902 as a Lutheran Church because the Reformed members had become too few in numbers to continue as a congregation. In 1933 the Lutherans abandoned the building, dismantled it, and disposed of the lumber and other materials. They then purchased the Evangelical Church building at Kreamer, re-dedicated it as a Lutheran Church, and named it St. Peter's Lutheran Church after the mother church at Globe Mills. The cemetery at Globe Mills is maintained by the Globe Mills Cemetery Association incorporated in January, 1935. Dunkelberger, The Story of Snyder County, p. 649.
