Photos and transcription by Clarissa Loyd



Detmold Cemetery is located north of Thorndale, it is also known as St. John Lutheran Church Cemetery.
From Thorndale, take US Hwy 79 (heading East of town) and turn left on E. Moerbe Street/FM 486, passing Thorndale High School,
and continuing until CR 443.  At the junction of FM 486 and CR 443, turn left on CR 443.  Continue down CR 443 until Detmold Community,
and the cemetery will be located at junction of CR 443 & CR 437 (do not take CR 437, this is just a reference point and the cemtery is located
in a grassy area off of CR 443) surrounded by crop land on the left side of CR 433.
There is a long trail to the cemetery and one can park in the grassy area by the gate.

There are a total of 217 individuals, including two unknown which can be seen here and here.
