Swedish Baptist and St. John Lutheran Cemeteries
Lockridge Township, Section 22

These two cemeteries are one and the same. It appears there was first a Baptist Church building at this site and later a German Lutheran congregation used the same building or built another building on the site. Both congregations have used the same burial ground since the graves are in close association with each other.
