BECHER, Ludwig Viktor

Ludwig Viktor Becher born in Bern, Switzerland. Married Anna Catharina Goebel. Died November 30, 1880 aged 71 years 3 months 21 days. Buried December 2, 1880.

Status: Unmarked

St Peter's Evangelical Lutheran Cemetery (original site), Zurich, Hay Township, Huron County, ON, Canada

Notes: This monument near the public school in Zurich, Ontario marks the spot of the original cemetery of St. Peter's Evangelical Lutheran Church. In the early 1920s, the headstones at this site were gathered and placed inside this cairn. Eventually the monument was sealed in an effort to deter vandals. No map of plot sites is known to exist. The church does have a record of burials which was translated by a kind visitor from Germany in recent years. The translated record has been reproduced below in its entirety.

UPDATE March 2012 - The cairn pictured above has been removed. Efforts to ensure recognition, restoration and remembrance are being undertaken at present by the 150th Anniversary Committee of the St. Peter's Lutheran Church in Zurich, Ontario.
