|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
There are 2 Apostolic Christian Church Cemeteries in Morton, this is the older one.
Per a Church member this Cemetery was in very bad condition, the headstones were broken and crumbled. They pulled up the headstones and laid fresh sod and put in new headstones to replace the broken ones.
The Origional one Acre of land was bought from Jacob Kaufman and his wife, Rosina on 2 Apr 1877. The first burial was Ursch Mincher in 1876. Some graves were marked with wooden crosses, none is still standing leaving no record of the deceased.
The 1892 deaths were mainly due to the Diptheria Epidemic.
