A brief History of the German / Rantoul Township / Peace Church Cemetery, Calumet County

The Free German Cemetery, Town of Rantoul, was originally an Indian burial ground, but all evidence of this has been gone for at least 80 years as of this date (1987). The first grave of a white man was that of Mr. Claus Kleist, Sr. (Aug. 10, 1801 - Jan. 3, 1868). Two babies, Claus Ostermann and Claus Thomson were also soon buried there and by the year 1864 talk started going around Potter and all of Rantoul Township that it would make a good cemetery. On Jan. 22, 1870 a meeting was held at the home of Claus Menke for the purpose of forming the Free German Cemetery Association. The first officers were: Claus Menke, Chairman; Henry D. Kleist, Secretary; Mathies Thompsen, Claus Moller and Henry Kasper, as Trustees. It was decided at that first meeting that a January meeting should be held each year and it was a tradition long kept. The property was officially purchased from Claus and Henriette Kleist in 1874 for the sum of $100.00. On Jan. 29, 1944 the F. C. C. A. decided that the Township would be better able to provide care and manage the affairs of the cemetery. The cemetery board put up the offer for $1.00 price.

At the annual meeting for Town of Rantoul a vote was taken and 135 were in favor of the town board purchasing the cemetery (none were against). The signing over of property took place April 12, 1944.

The Kleist family has often had a hand in the care of the cemetery. Others who were often helpful were Carl Schaefer, Herman Kalk, Otto Thiel, Jacob Kasper, Otto Mathies, and many, many others.
