Early records of Schwarzwald were lost. The church is estimated to have formed in 1737. Beginning with a log cabin it was later replaced with a stone structure. And later in 1870, with a brick structure which stands today. In mid 1950s additions and paved parking lots were added. And in 1962 another addition was added. With each of these major building upgrades, graves and tombstones were displaced and or paved over. Except for the last change in 1962, no records are found as to the disposition of the graves and stones. The names on the plaque represent those graves moved or covered about 1962. All the readable stones were transcribed. There were a total of 147 stones, 31 unreadable, faded or missing. These stones, as well as other earlier removed, and burial remains, are thought to be below the concrete floor of the social hall.
