Founded originally with the Lutherans in 1768. The graveyard was nearly eliminated to make way for a new addition (150 names, 1952, plus 89 more added during subsequent bulldozing, see pp. 1301 - 1303).

The stones from St. John's Reformed Church Cemetery are said to be stored under the floor of a new annex. Such piles of discards may be profitably explored and pieces fitted together to yield inscriptions.
