Notes about Storck cemetery from Jim Storck
"I am a great-great-grandson of Georg and Brigitta / Bridget Storck. They arrived USA in the late 1840's and settled in Clayton County.  According to family records they had a farm  on the Turkey River about 5 miles South East of Guttenberg.  They are listed incorrectly in the 1850 census as Stocks, but in the 1856 census they are Storcks.  Buried on this farm are the father Georg and son Phillip. Georg died before 1856 and Phillip soon after.  I believe from the census records this area is in Jefferson  township. Information I have (year unknown), a new house was built on that property and the grave stones of the two mentioned above were in the basement of that house and at that time some of the family wanted to take the stones to an Old Stone Church. As I understand it, the graves are still in the original spot, only the markers were moved. I hope this helps to identify this cemetery and is of some help."
