Unknown Cemetery

This cemetery is located in Section 9 of Ulster Twp. The cemetery is covered in heavy overgrowth and in 1982 only a few of the stones were readable.

Some names were found in WPA records under the name German Lutheran Cemetery. Another source tells us that it was at one time called Mohring Cemetery.

It is possible that some graves were moved to Riverside Cemetery at Rockford, IA, at an earlier date.

According to an old history book, this cemetery was first laid out in 1854.

"WPA records have a Anna M. Lange Lindercamp, born Oct 17, 1806 in Germany; died July, 1885."  Could this be the same person?

The 1860 census has a John C. Hill, age 61, Physician born Ohio. Same man?
John C. Hill also found in WPA records as buried at German Lutheran Cemetery.

Note: According to Aaron J. Hill, of Seattle, WA, his full name was John Crooks Hill. He was born in Trumbull County, Ohio in 1799, the son of James Hill and Sarah Tidd of Hardin County, Ohio. His wife was Mary Rickey. [email: hillaj@outlook.com - 9 JAN 2016]

Anyone with information regarding this cemetery or names of people believed buried there, please email County Coordinator

It would also be helpful to know of graves that have been moved to another cemetery. Some may have been moved to cemeteries in Nashua, Chickasaw County
