|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Abtshagen cemetery is located on the grounds of the Abtshagen parish church. The village of Abtshagen is in the German federal state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. It is on Highway 194. Abtshagen is 4.5 km south of the town of Steinhagen and about 7.5 km north of the town of Grimmen. Stralsund, to the north, is probably the closest large city.
The church structure dates back to 1380, the wooden tower was built in 1667. It's locally known as "Heilgeistkirche" (Holy Ghost Church). Thanks to "Frank", a findagrave.com contributor, who generously provided the photograph and an historical description.
findagrave.com's database for German cities is incomplete. It doesn't list Abtshagen, Steinhagen, Grimmen, Franzburg or even Stralsund as cities! So, I have chosen "Unknown City" for the city location of the Abtshagen parish cemetery. I would welcome a suggestion of a better way to identify the city.
