St. Peter's German Cemetery is located at the site of present-day Tonawanda-Kenmore Historical Society, the same building that once was St. Peter's German Evangelical Church. The cemetery is surrounded by the larger Mount Olivet Cemetery.

Cemetery History

St. Peter's German Cemetery is one of oldest cemeteries in Tonawanda, with burials going back into the 1830s. The old brick church building was built in 1849 and is surrounded with graves and the entire property enclosed with an iron fence.  It is still an active cemetery and still accepts new burials.

One of the oldest graves is that of Martin Zimmerman who was born April 20, 1785 and died in 1847. Two soldiers lie buried here: "August Schinamann, Co. K 6th U. S. Cavalry," and "Wm. Kopf, 44 N. Y." each decorated with a flag.

    What makes us Different?

    Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

    Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
