This is a transcription of the cemetery located in the Township of Schley, on County Road X, just north of County C.  It is called the Evang. Luth./Lettish Church cemetery, but I could not find a sign identifying it. It was a smallish cemetery, and did not seem to be well taken care of.  Grass had grown tall, and obscured some of the stones.  However there were recent burials, and also recent memorials placed near the graves.
