The St. James Lutheran Cemetery is located northeast of Archbold, on the south side of SR 2, at the intersection with County Road 20-3. The St. James Lutherans constructed a log church at the present cemetery site in 1851. A brick building, built at the same location, replaced the log church in 1873. The congregation closed the brick church in 1930 and moved to Burlington. The old church building was sold in 1934 and the ground added to the cemetery. This burial ground has sometimes been called the Leininger Cemetery.
The cemetery is located in German Township, Fulton County, Ohio, and is # 3768 (Saint James Cemetery / Leininger Cemetery / James Cemetery) in “Ohio Cemeteries 1803-2003”, compiled by the Ohio Genealogical Society.
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Geographic Names Information System (GNIS) feature ID for the cemetery is 1042049 (Saint James Cemetery / James Cemetery / Leininger Cemetery).
