This cemetery is located in the southwest quarter of Section 26, Township 23 South, Range 1 West. It was first affiliated with the German Baptist Brethren congregation, which established a church at this site in 1886 on land donated by Reuben Royer, a deacon in the German Baptist Brethren Church. In 1918 the church moved into the city of Newton, and the rural church was reorganized as a German Baptist Brethren affiliate and named the Royer Community Church. This church operated until 1934 and the church building was demolished about 1940. Most burials are of Brethren church members but has been open to the public. The cemetery receives little maintenance and the remaining gravestones are hidden in tall prairie grass.
