Lutheran Cemetery Ellis County Oklahoma


Lutheran Cemetery
AKA St. Paul's Lutheran

SEC-7 TWN-20 R-25

LOCATION: 2 miles south of the Shattuck Cemetery, 2 miles west and 1/4 south on east side of road.

The oldest recorded death by headstone is that of Rachel Meier in 1904. However, there are several graves that are not marked which are probably older.

In 1906 Mr. Michael Borth helped build the St. Paul's Lutheran Chruch on the David Sell Homestead. This church was dedicated March 11, 1906. The churchs location was across the road west of the cemetery. This church was built in the style of the German Russian tradidtions.

In 1910 the land around the cemetery belonged to the Houser estate.

On cemetery gate: "Dedicated to John and Katharina Appel"

The cemetery is one of distinction. It is the only cemetery in the county that is not platted squarely. This is shown clearly in the 1910 plat book. Also, it is the only county cemetery we found with several metal cross markers used instead of the traditional headstones. These metal cross markers are a very common sight in many Kansas cemeteries. Especially those of the Volga Russian German Emmigrant settlements.

Apparently there is no known cemetery map for this cemetery. Frank and Gertrude Knowles made a place reference map in 1995. Frank also obtained the aerial photo showing the distinctive shape of this cemetery.

There are several names (listed from previous records) for which we do not know the location. Dut to the shape of the cemetery, it is thought there are probably several graves in the N. E. corner.

NOTE: There is a Lutheran cemetery on a hill south east of Lipscomb, TX. and one in Harper Co.,OK.
