Mennonite Cemetery

Franklin Township

A large memorial stands in one corner of the cemetery with bronze plates inscribed with the following: "Site of the Mennonite church building erected in 1854 commemorating the founding of the general conference Mennonite church. First Corinthians 3:11 'For other foundations can no man lay than that
The general conference Mennonite church was founded in West Point, to unify all missions and publications and educations. Erected in 1960"

Copied by Mrs. Ruby Crenshaw and Mrs. Mary Slutts, Sept. 1967. Much of the inscriptions are in German. May be mistakes. Letters are fancy writing.
