The congregation of St.
John's Lutheran Church was formed in about the year 1873. The congregation of
Trinity Lutheran Church was organized on May 21, 1881. These two congregations
formed one parish and were served by one pastor. Cemeteries for both of these
congregations were located at the site of the old St. John's Lutheran Church in
Brighton Township, north of Spencer, Marathon County, Wisconsin. The north side
of the cemetery is Trinity Lutheran's cemetery, and the south side is St. John's
Lutheran Cemetery. Sometime between the years of 1909 and 1911, the two
congregations terminated their union and St. John's Lutheran Church called its
own pastor. From 1911 to 2006, the building of St. John's Lutheran Church was
next to both cemeteries, but may be torn down sometime in the year of 2007.
