|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Bethany Moravian Church was located on this site from 1867-1979. The congregation was organized in 1867 with fourteen members. The first pastor was Heinrich Reusswig. Services were held in the school until the church was built in 1872. A newer church was built on the site in 1903 and torn down in 1979, three years after the congregation merged with Hebron to form Our Savior's Moravian Church. The oldest dated tombstone is for Joseph Schwager who died October 20, 1861 at the age of three years. There are 315+ marked graves. This is still an active cemetery. (text by C. Kay)
