|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Sarverville Cemetery is located next to St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church. There is an old section and a new section to the cemetery, separated by the church parking lot and a farm. Sarverville Cemetery is now a run by a Cemetery Board not associated with St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church.
St. Paul's English Lutheran Church was organized in 1868, by Rev. J. H. FRITZ. An old Covenanter Church, which stood upon the site of the present edifice, was used as a place for meetings until 1870, when the present house was erected. Adjoining it and including its site are three acres of ground, which tract was purchased from the Covenanter organization. A cemeter [sic] of four acres adjoins this lot. The ground for the cemetery was purchased two years after the building of the church. (Butler Co. History 1895)
The church has been rebuilt since then and the "new section" of the cemetery is on additional land, the "old section" is on the original four acres. A few of the oldest graves were moved by families to the cemetery after its establishment.
