Montier, Shannon Co MO


This is actually the cemetery of the Pine Grove Old German Baptist church district. 
Simon Martin was the minister of the congregation from its organization in 1891. 
The Vindicator is the official periodical of this denomination which changed its name
from Old German Baptist to Old German Baptist Brethren Church within the past few years. 
Obituaries submitted.


Dunkard is actually a derogatory name often applied to the various Brethren groups. 
Dunker is the proper term, by which we were known prior to

adapting a formal name in 1836. ~
