German Protestant Cemetery
Directly across from the Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Cemetery
East Main and Hunts Street
Town of Hamburg, Erie, New York 14075

Complied by Ellen Allison, Summer of 2003
Special thanks to Lynn Francis for transcribing the cemetery.

 This is the original log of the lot owners of St. James UCC, Hamburg NY. The cemetery is an old German
Protestant Cemetery directly across from the St. Peter and Paul Catholic Cemetery. It is in disrepair with
many damaged and overturned stones. There is no Cemetery Marker Stone indicating that this is a cemetery.
I have also mapped out as many of the stone as were readable and have that in an excel file. According
to the church and the Town of Hamburg offices, there are no burial records of who or when burials took place.
These stones and maps were created during the summer of 2003. Any further information please e-mail These cemetery lots, according to the plot ownership list were purchased in 1872.
But after research I have come to believe that sales BEGAN in 1872, as a member of my family did not
purchase until 1892. This information was obtained from the Buffalo & Erie County library microfilm
records for St. James Church, Hamburg, NY. At the very end of that file is a log of persons and dates
and amounts paid for the lots at this cemetery.

St. Jacobia (currently St. James UCC) is the holder of these records.
Please note that there is no official Cemetery Marking to designate this site, just.
In fact special thanks to the priest at Sts. PP for telling me of the old burial site there.
Back in the higher grass, some dead trees, There is a somewhat of a "pathway" directly up the middle.
The cemetery has been vandalized and there is not even cemetery signage to make known it's location.
