Old St. Paul's Lutheran Church and Cemetery
Newton, Catawba CO, NC, June 2003

Many thanks to Cousin David Cline for providing this wonderful photo of Old St. Paul's Lutheran Church Cemetery, the burial site of Sebastian Klein! About the photo David said, "It still appears like Old St. Paul's Church and cemetery are in the country and looks the same as it did in the early 1800s. Actually, it is in the middle of a residential area with heavy traffic near the middle of Newton. Newton, Conover, and Hickory all run together, but Newton is a beautiful tree-lined town."


This site is dedicated to the memory of my mother Beulah Cline Nipper, a beautiful product of the Knobs.
