Facebook comments noted by Bruce Kuennen and submitted on 9/10/2018. The location of the old cemetery is on the same side of the street as the Parish Center. (South side of B32). It is located in the far Southwest corner of that property. Originally this was to be the cemetery. Blue pan clay made it unsuitable so they moved it behind church.

Carolin Kauten commented on Facebook that church records do not indicate who was buried in the old cemetery. She was told that some of the persons buried there were moved to the new cemetery, generally people who could afford to do so.

First burial 1859 in the new cemetery behind the church.
