From Leonard Schoffer: The graveyard was covered completely by blow dirt during the 1930s. I went out there last summer (2007) on a nostalgic trip, and, to my surprise, I found that the site was in a restoration stage. The name of the person doing the restoration is Cecil Duzan formerly of Ormiston SK, but now lives in Moose Jaw. I was very glad to be able to see the graves of my Great Grandfather (Christoff Schoffer) and my Great Grand Mother (Catherine Schoffer). I believe the church and graveyard were established between about 1905 to 1915. The grave yard was on the NW corner of a 1/4 section of land that my grandfather owned. It is approximately 7 miles southwest of Ormiston SK. His name was George Schoffer. He owned a section of land in the area, this land was later owned by my father, George Schoffer junior, he in turn sold the farm to his cousin Floyd Schoffer.
