Cemetery Inscriptions of Newberry Township in Miami County Ohio
by Joseph H. Bosserman

    This cemetery (in 1979) is active and well cared for by the Church. It is located on the southwest corner of the Versailles & Bradford-Bloomer Roads approximately 1 mile south of Bloomer, Ohio and six miles northwest of Covington, Ohio. It is in Newberry Township, Miami County, Ohio. It is in the northeast corner of the northeast quarter of section three, town nine, range four.

    Some years ago (about 1915) the Church Records were lost when the home of John Routson, The Church Secretary, burned to the ground. The following history has been abstracted from pages 42-44 of the book "Fruits of Faith Alone" published in 1977 by the Lutheran Social Service of the Miami Valley History Committee:

    "Tradition says that the church was founded when the young daughter of a German Lutheran settler, Adam Kleinschmidt, drowned while crossing the Stillwater River. There being no church for miles (Lutheran) where the people could assemble for divine comfort, brought to the attention of the German Speaking community the need and a log church was built on the present location in the year 1830. For a while it was known as the Stillwater Church. By 1833 the log church was replaced by a frame building and in 1837 they received a land deed for a one and a quarter acre plot of ground from Henry Brumbaugh, an early German Baptist settler. The cemetery takes up a part of this lot. The congregation decided to rename itself. The desire for autonomy and in thanksgiving for their free country, the determined to call it Friedens Evangelical Lutheran Church. The present brick structure standing on the site was built in 1889.
