On June 24th, 1836, Peter F. and Catherine M. Goll along with their 2 year old son, Peter F. Jr., embarked from Grand-Charmont, Doubs, France to come to America.

After 2 ½ months on the ocean they landed in New Amsterdam, (New York) and traveled by river and canal boat to Wayne Co., Ohio, where after a few days rest with friends, the Golls started their journey on further west by wagon.

They settled on what is now section 23 and 24 of German Township, Fulton Co., near the Tiffin River, and at an early date the family set aside this sandy knoll in the woods as the family burial plot.

Many of the names on these grave markers are representative of the pioneer families who came to this area to settle the "Black Swamp” and to begin a new life in a new land of opportunity and promise.

In 1965, Mrs. Florence E. Goll Louys, great-grand daughter of Peter F. Goll, deeded the cemetery to the German Township Trustees.
