The Bethlehem Lutheran Church Congregation acquired the site of the cemetery as part of the church property in October 1865.
In the outset of the congregation all members of the church were allowed burial in the cemetery free of charge, but the directory located on site does not give the location—only the name of the person buried, if an adult, or only "child of (father)" if a child. Thus, there are graves without names and names without grave numbers.
The Texas Historic Landmark marker text at the adjacent church states:
BETHLEHEM LUTHERAN CHURCH
A center of Lutheran faith in Fayette County. Dedicated 10-28-66 with Rev. Adam. Neuthard as first pastor. Unique pipe organ of cedar built by Traugott Wantke. Stone construction shows German architectural style.
