Funerals, 1900-1914
Emmanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church
Laurens, Pocahontas County, Iowa

This church was founded in 1897 by a group of Germans who had come to Laurens from Boscobel, Wisconsin. I am not sure exactly where in Laurens it was located, but it disbanded some time before 1920.

The records below were transcribed from pages handwritten in German--I apologize for any errors.
