This cemetery is located on the southwest corner of the southeast quarter of Section 13 in Genoa Township.
Mainly known also as a German cemetery because of the high concentrate of German settlers who populated the area in as early as 1835. The official sanction of the cemetery took place in 1850. Originally the old church, schoolyard and burying sites were all located here.
The current church is located in the city limits of Brighton and the old church was sold to a farmer who moved it across the road for a granary. One can find many of the early residents of the county buried here. When I filmed there several months ago, there were many broken and damaged stones, but I understand that steps are being taken to correct the situation as best as possible. The images from this filming should be up the winter of 2003-04. Sadlye they were delayed due to all the surgeries I went through courtesy of a car wreck.
In the 1940's the DAR came through the county and transcribed many cemeteries into three volumes with three separate indexes. The three indexes were compiled into one and they became the beginning of the new table format which not only shows those interred but the cemetery names which are linked to these individual cemetery pages.
