Inscription. German native Boi Albert Cornils immigrated as a young adult to this area in 1884 and wed another young immigrant, Bertha Lembke. The couple settled on ranchland east of Lohn and reared five children. In 1896, they deeded five acres for a free public school adjacent to a community burial ground on their property. Several unmarked graves may predate the first recorded burial, that of Heinrich Rudolph (d. 1883). A cemetery association formed in 1972 to oversee maintenance. Today, with several hundred graves, including many veterans, the cemetery preserves the history of Lohn and its residents.
