|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
"St. Matthew's Lutheran Church was organized on Sunday, April 15, 1838 by Rev. Benjamin Arey, the church's first pastor. At the first communion service there were thirty-three people present. Many names found in these first communion records of 1838 are ancestors of church members that belong to St. Matthew's today. The corner stone of our sanctuary was laid on April 12, 1882. The belfry was erected in 1891. The wings were added in 1924. St. Matthew's continues the 1838 tradition of celebrating Homecoming on the fourth Sunday in August."
