I'm Free


Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free, I'm following the path God laid for me.

I took his hand when I heard him call, I turned by back and left it all.

I could not stay another day, To laugh, to love, to work or play.

Tasks left undone must stay that way, I've found that peace with the close of day.

If my parting has left a void, Then fill it with remembered joy.

A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Ah, yet, these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow. I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.

My life's been full, I savord much, Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief, Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.

Lift up your heart and share with me, God wanted my now, He set me free.

ADVENTIST CEMETERY
AKA SEVENTH DAY ADVENTIST
AKA WEISS CEMETERY
SEC-15 TWP-20 R-25
LOCATION: 5 MILES SOUTH OF SHATTUCK AND 1 MILE EAST.


 

 

The Seventh Day Adventist Church was organized in the winter of 1901-2 by the local German settlers in the community.

Services were first held in the Kahoe School, 3 miles S. and 1/2 West of Shattuck. The church was planned in 1903. The church land, located 5 miles South and 1/2 E. of Shattuck was donated by Henry SCHULTZ. Conrad C. WEISS Bought the land from Henry SCHULTZ and is shown to be the land owner in 1910. The land for the cemetery 1/2 mile East of the church was donated by David OBLANDER. The first person buried in the Seventh Day Adventist Cemetery was an American woman of Non-German descent who was traveling through the community when she died, no one keew her name. The date of death was not recorded. The first Seventh Day Adventist burial was in 1907.

On several of the 1920'S Death Records, the cemetery was listed as the "Weiss Cemetery" as well as Seventh Day Adventist Cemetery. In Keeping with the old world traditions, the burials in the beginning were in order of death, also, the graves were often "stacked", with up to three in a space. In current times, family headstones and places are reserved, but for the most part the graves are still placed in order of death. In cases of a reserved space, depending upon its location, the grave may have to be hand dug.

The Seventh Day Adventist Congregation was very helpful in getting the following records. These records are as correct and complete as any record we have. Our deepest gratitude is extended to all.
