History:

"One of the oldest burial grounds in [Snyder] county is the Zion's Church graveyard, one mile north of Freeburg.  A grant of land of forty-two acres was given to Andrew Morr, Casper Roush, and Peter Straub, in 1770, for the erection of a Lutheran Church and for a burial ground.  Many of the early settlers of Freeburg and vicinity are buried there."
