St. Jacobs Lutheran Cemetery

Wayne County, IN
     This little cemetery is located just inside Jefferson Township, Wayne County, IN near the Henry/Wayne County line on State Road #38 east. Most of the burials here were Henry county citizens.
     Jacob Kimmel donated an acre of land for the church and cemetery in 1838 and agreed to build the church at his own expense. It was completed in 1838. In honor of the donor the church was named Saint Jacobs.
     The Rev. Zumpe of the German Reformed church and Rev. Groover, of the Lutheran church, originally organized the church. The church was originally one of three that formed the East Germantown, Indiana Parish.
     The church closed sometime in the late 1800s and merged with the Lutheran church near Millville in Liberty Township, Henry County. This church later closed and the members joined the Lutheran church at New Castle.
     Today the cemetery is maintained by the Jefferson Township trustee and is mowed and cleaned regularly. There are many stones down and need repaired.
     This list was found in the Henry County Historical Society Museum. There were no name or dates to indicate who the author was.
