Comments: This grave site was started when Jacob B. Guenther's first wife Maria Friesen was killed by a lightening bolt. Also buried are three children after he remarried to Maria's sister. Barbara was 3 when she was driven over by her brother. Jacob and Margaret died in infancy. Mr. Guenther later became a minister in the Bergthal church.

There may have been some Friesens buried there but not confirmed.
