Saint John's Catholic Church Cemetery
Lake Creek Township, Section 21
Bahner, Pettis County, Missouri
In Bahner, on the south side of V, and just west of the church building. Fenced, attended, and currently accepting burials.
Initially this cemetery was for the community of Bahner. It was placed west of property that belonged to St. John Catholic Church. St John was burying its dead in a cemetery to the east that abutts St Paul Lutheran Cemetery. This was abandoned in 1882, and St. John began burying in Bahner Cemetery. As the Bahner community reduced, this German cemetery became known as St. John Cemetery.
