St. John's Hay Creek Cemetery

Donated by Willow Steinke

St Johns Hay Creek Cemetery was formed the same year as St. John's Lutheran Church, in 1883. It is located on Hay Creek Road in rural Fairchild, WI. Take highway M out of Augusta to Lang Road. Stay on Lang Road until you get to Hay Creek Road. This road will take you right past the cemetery. It is approximately five miles out of Augusta, WI. and just south of St. Johns Church.
This cemetery was only used by the congregation of St. Johns Church until the year of 1962. On January 7th, 1962 the cemetery association was formed, thereby allowing others to be buried there.
St. Johns Hay Creek Cemetery is located in a quaint country setting with a huge old oak tree and many flowering bushes and is fenced all around. It has only 456 lots. The lots are quite reasonable and the maintenance is done by Norman Steinke. He has been the grounds keeper since 1988. His sister Deloris Steinke is the sexton of the cemetery. She keeps all the records and is the person to contact when purchasing a lot (see contact info below).
St. Johns Cemetery has several veterans intered there from WWI,  WWII and the Korean War:

            John ZANK - WWI
            William ARNDT - WWI
            William BARRINGER - WWII
            Roland ZANK - WWII
            Edward LAROSE - US Army
