Saint Marys Twin Grove German Cemetery

German Cemetery
Also known as St. Mary's Twin Grove Catholic Cemetery. Now surrounded by private property, this once was the site of the first Catholic church and cemetery of the area. This cemetery was restored in 2006.

The markers have been moved and may not represent the actual burial locations. It is a well manicured lawn with a stone berm around the area containing the markers. There are 6 large monuments with inscriptions and names of people interred here; marking the corners and berm entrance. A central circle contains partial markers, remenants of broken markers, and some small markers.

There is a seventh monument outside the stone berm in the SE corner. It marks an approximate location of some French settlers who are buried here. Locals also believe some native American Indians are also buried in that location.
