Norman Krischke wrote a booklet about the Salem Memorial Cemetery that can be
found at the Fayette Heritage Archives and Museum in La Grange. The booklet
includes a drawing of the church and states that the church building was
moved to Swiss Alp and is still standing. The Fayette County, Texas Heritage
book says that the Salem Lutheran Church, the Black Jack Springs Trinity
Lutheran Church, and the Swiss Alp church were all merged in 1967. Old
records for Salem Lutheran Church can be found at the Texas Wendish Museum at

Further information about the Salem Memorial Cemetery and the Lutheran church
at Swiss Alp can be found at the TXGenWeb site listed below.
