Engelsburg Methodist Pioneer Cemetery
Kalbar, Boonah Shire, Queensland, Australia
Contributed by Judy Dickson Dec 28, 2008, last edited Mar 30, 2009 [email@example.com]. Total records = 54.
This cemetery is located just outside Kalbar on the Kalbar-Peak Crossing Road.
The township of Kalbar was previously known as Engelsburg. It is now situated in the Scenic Rim Regional Council region, but was in the Boonah Shire area prior to the recent council amalgamations.
According to a plaque on site, land for a Church and this cemetery were donated by Elijah and Sarah Horton, a pioneer family of this district. The Cemetery was restored as a Centenary Project in 2001.
In a small rotunda at the front of the cemetery, plaques have been placed giving details of known burials, many of which are now unmarked. Where indicated by an "*" in the listing which follows, a headstone still exists.
We visited this cemetery in December 2008 and made a full transcription of surviving headstones and memorial plaques.
