|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Sometimes referred to in it's early years as Breitenstein Lutheran Church, named after the family that donated the land, or Wall Rose Lutheran Church. The church organized in 1838 and official names throughout it's history found in the church records are, in order: German Evangelical Reformed and Lutheran Church; German United Evangelical St. Matthew's Church; St. Matthew's Evangelical Lutheran Church. The name most commonly found in more recent obituaries lists it simply as St. Matthew's Lutheran Church.
The church cemetery is actually located on St Mathews [sic] Church Rd, directly across the road (east) from the church. St. Mathew's Church Rd. runs south off of Wallrose Heights Rd and is the second road east of Conway Wallrose Rd. (Friel Rd being the first road). If using electronic mapping programs it may be best to use the church address: 379 Friel Rd, Baden, PA 15005, which actually locates a bit south of the actual cemetery.
