Location: At Parfrey Glen Road and Highway 78, about 25 yards east of the junction of County DL and Highway 78 on the north side of the road. The cemetery is right on the Sauk/Columbia County line. Coming from Merrimac, east on Highway 78, the cemetery is .7 of a mile past the Columbia County sign, on the left, just past County DL.

This is the cemetery of the St. John German Evangelical Lutheran Church which was established around 1888, with a church built in 1890 in the vicinity of the cemetery. The building was moved in 1982 to the corner of Highway 78 and Bluff Road where it was completely restored and is now a part of the Old Schoolhouse Restaurant.

The cemetery is divided into sections with the oldest sections at the eastern most part of the cemetery. The newest sections are at the western most part of the cemetery. Some of the Ringling Brothers, their parents, and other relatives are buried in this cemetery.

I transcribed this cemetery on Jun 06, 2002 from my own readings, taken when I visited the cemetery, then comparing this transcription with earlier work done by the WSOCS. A thank you to members of the Wisconsin State Old Cemetery Society for providing this information of their work completed in the 1980's.

    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.
