A private family cemetery in a farmer's field across the road from Peace Lutheran Cemetery south of Tilleda, section 22, Seneca twp. Originally thought to be a part of Peace Lutheran but is a separate cemetery.

The large monument give's father's data but not much about the mother, although she has a small stone marked as Muter. Ernest Ziesmer aka Erny August Frank Ziesmer, is also buried to the right behind the monument, he also has a small stone. There may be a a fourth grave to the left, but no marker or information is available. The area within the fence is badly overgrown with daylilies and grass.

There should be a grave of a daughter Ida Schenk born Feb. 1876, and died 14 Jul 1933. She never married. Not much else is known.
