|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This cemetery is located on Stemler Road in Section 12 of the south part of Sugar Loaf Township. Baltz Cemetery is also known as "Salem Cemetery". Salem Evangelical Church was established adjacent to this cemetery and was dedicated June 16, 1844 by Pastor Johann Jacob Riess, Pastor Jacob Knauss, and Conrad Riess. The church was sold in December 1910 to George Culli who moved it to Millstadt where it was torn down in July 1964. The earliest known burial in the cemetery appears to be that of Elisabetha Maria Hoffmann who died at the age of 7 years on October 18, 1845. Additional information about many of those buried here can be found in the death records of Zion Evangelical Church, Millstadt.
