Salem Memorial Cemetery

FREYBURG, FAYETTE COUNTY, TEXAS

  

Taken from Salem Memorial Cemetery, copyrighted 1998, with the permission of the author, Norman C. Krischke:

The Salem Memorial Cemetery was established in May 1870 on acquisition of land by the Salem Lutheran Church at Freyburg. According to the tombstone record, the first burial was that of Dorothea Sauer who died 31 August 1871 at the age of 65 years. The cemetery is located south of the site of the church and the school. The church building was moved to Swiss Alp and is still standing. The school, second building, is still standing on the site on which it was built.

This cemetery is located in Freyburg off FM 2238 on County Road 371/Salem-Freyburg Road. The Freiburg Cemetery is adjacent to this site. The Salem Evangelical Lutheran Church located at this site merged with the Philadelphia Evangelical Lutheran Church at Swiss Alp in May 1967 and that is when the building was moved. Twelve pastors served the congregation before the merger. Only one, Simon Suess, is buried here.

It is a well-kept cemetery with many German inscriptions. Kathy Carter and Helen Muras surveyed this cemetery on November 17, 1986. Norman C. Krischke mapped, surveyed, & researched the site in 1998. His report, "Salem Memorial Cemetery," (98.7.1) is available in the cemetery files of the Fayette Heritage Archives. [Joe Cole #116bW]

Krischke's booklet contains a map and obituaries. The full text can be viewed at the Fayette Heritage Museum & Archives.
