St. Paul's Lutheran Cemetery at Concordia, Missouri

in Lafayette County, MO

Alternate names: St. Paul's Cemetery, Lutheran Cemetery, Concordia Cemetery

    The St. Paul's Lutheran Cemetery is located a short distance from the interstate highway exit at Concordia, Missouri in east central Lafayette County, MO.  This cemetery is the oldest and largest in the Concordia area.  This area was heavily settled by Germans and that heritage can be seen on some of the tombstones here.  Beyond the obviously German names, many tombstones also have dates and verses in German script.

    A monument at the cemetery marks this as the first location of St. Paul's Lutheran Church as a log structure built in 1844.  This was replaced by a brick church building in 1860 which served until it was replaced by the current building several blocks south.

    Another plaque at the cemetery marks a series of Civil War tragedies which took place in Concordia.  The plaque reads as follows:

    CIVIL WAR CASUALTIES

    Buried in this vicinity of St. Paul's Cemetery are members of the congregation who died as a result of Civil War Guerrilla activity from September 1862 to October 10, 1864.  The victims include Heinrich Steinbrink, Heinrich Eickhoff, Christian Oetting, Heinrich Brockhoff, Heinrich Hartmann, Louis Fiene, Conrad Bruns, Dietrich Kastens, Wilhelm Scharnhorst, Louis Walter, Hermann Brinkhoff, Friedrich Grottmann, Fr. D. Brackmann, Louis Stuenkel, J. H. Friedrich Meyer, Heinrich Bruns, Friedrich Bruns, Hermann Wolters, W. Peper, Heinrich Freitag, Wilhelm Brackmann, Friedrich Dittmer, Diedrich Droege, and Bernhard Reggers. 

     

    From the Interstate Highway 70 exit 58, turn south and go to the first street intersection. Turn east (left), the first entrance to the cemetery is immediately behind the business buildings.
