1. St. John's Lutheran Church Cemetery Marker
Inscription. Early homesteaders in Lipscomb County were Russians of German descent. These included Jacob M. and Amalia Koch, who were members of St. Johnís Evangelical Lutheran Church, established by the German Russian settlers in 1914. By 1916, the Koch family allowed church members to use this land as a burial ground; they deeded the land to the church in 1950. The first burial was that of baby Hildegard Schilling in January 1916. The cemetery today is a link to early Lipscomb County settlers and to their German Russian Heritage, as chronicled on the gravestones.
