St. John's German Cemetery —— · · · —— St. John's German United Evangelical Church acquired this site in 1862 for its cemetery. Black Rock pioneers including War of 1812 veterans, German immigrants who began arriving in the 1840s, and their descendants through the mid 1920s were buried here. The cemetery was taken out of service in 1977, and those interred here were commemorated with a new monument in Elmlawn Cemetery, Tonawanda.
