St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church
Hickory Street, Buffalo, Erie co., NY

According to the Mormon LDS Library, most of these early Lutheran settlers came to Erie county
with a Pastor GRABAU from the Alsace-Lorraine area.  They started the first Lutheran church
in Buffalo, the St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church on Hickory Street.  In Buffalo, Pastor GRABAU
started what is now the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and the Missouri Synod spun off of
that in the 1850s when he and other ministers had a difference of opinion.
The LDS Family History Center had the microfilm of communicants, baptisms, confirmations, marriages
and deaths from 1833-1866.
Here are some Zurbricks & related family members from that microfilm.
