This study briefly reports on the excavation and removal of four burials from St. Johannes Cemetery in Bensenville, Illinois. The cemetery began in the first half of the nineteenth century and continues in use today. It was historically associated with the German-American community of small farmers that settled in the area and at least into the 1930s was still called the Evangelical St. Johannes Kirche and Cemetery. Today the cemetery includes about 1,400 burials on the roughly 2.5 acre cemetery and church lot.
