Gnadenau Mennonite Brethren Cemetery
Name of R.M.: Lawtonia No: 135
History: In the Fall of 1906, the families of Jacob A. Priebe, which included 2 sons and one son-in-law, moved to Saskatchewan. Jacob A. Priebe and the rest of the family moved in April 1907, as well as their married daughter Katherine and her family. They lived in the district called Flowing Well. The families met for church in Jacob A. Priebe's house, as it was the largest in the district. The church was built in 1911, and was open until November 1968; it was called the Flowing Well Church. There were several burials in the Cemetery (1910) before the church was built. Helena (Enns) Priebe (died Sept.17, 1913) was the first funeral in the church. The cemetery is still in use today.
