Saint John's Church Cemetery
AKA German Reformed Church Cemetery
Amazonia
Andrew County, Missouri

Directions: From Savannah, west on State Route T 4 miles to St. John's Church and cemetery, on west side of road.

Notes: Burial place of many Swiss immigrants, this cemetery was originally connected with the German Reformed denomination, later the Church of Christ.

Translation notes: "Geb." means "born," and "Gest." means "died." Many of the women's maiden names are given after "Geb." "Hier Ruht" is the equivilent of "Here lies" or "Here rests."
