Description

Location: Macon Township - SW 1/4 of Section 26 Twp 23S Range 1W Two miles south of Highway 50 on Hoover Road (CR-813), turn east on Southwest 24th (CR-574). The cemetery is on the north side of the road, about 1/4 mile east of the intersection. The cemetery is not well maintained and graves are usually buried in prairie grass. History: In 1886, the Reuben B. Royer family settled in Macon Township. When the Peabody Church agreed to start a mission Church in Newton, Deacon Reuben Royer donated part of his land, the southwest corner of Section 26, for a Church and Cemetery. The Newton German Baptist Brethren Church, a small white frame building, was soon established and the cemetery laid out. When the Church started the Newton Church of the Brethren in town, the rural Church was reorganized as the Royer Community Church in 1918, but retained its affiliation with the German Baptist Brethren association. The Church closed its doors in 1934, and the Church building was torn down about 1940. The cemetery remains on the west side of the property. While most burials are of Brethren Church members, the cemetery was open to anyone. First Known Burial: 1875 Number of Burials: 24
