Hediger Cemetery is located on NW 150th St., 0.1 miles west of the intersection of N. May Ave. and NW 150th St. in Oklahoma City. From the downtown Oklahoma City area, take I-40 west. Exit right onto I-44 east at exit 147B. Continue on I-44 east approximately 3.5 miles and exit left onto State Highway 74. Continue on State Highway 74 for 7 miles, merge left at the Memorial Rd. {Kirkpatrick Turnpike} exit to continue on State Highway 74 {also known as Portland Ave.} and continue on for 1 mile to NW 150th St. Turn right {east} on NW 150th St. and go approximately 0.8 miles. The cemetery is on the right {south} side of the road.

On December 8, 1903, Rev. Jacob and Marie Hediger conveyed the property to Henry Dahl, Fred Boschen and Henry Yentz and their successors as Trustees of the Evangelishe Lutherische St. Johanes Kirches of which Rev. Hediger the Pastor. St. Johanes Church was a Lutheran church in the Edmond, Oklahoma area that was established by German speaking immigrants in the late 19th century and was affiliated with the German Evangelical Lutheran Synod of Nebraska. The property was used for cemetery purposes by a number of families that had been affiliated with the church. The Evangelishe Lutherische St. Johanes Kirches became extinct and ceased to function in about 1919. On December 11, 1963, Traugott Hediger, a son and heir of both Jacob and Maria Hediger, deeded the property to the Peace Lutheran Church of Edmond, Oklahoma. The original books of cemetery records were given to them at that time. Peace Church sold the cemetery about 1996. A 1957 canvass of the cemetery listed 8 gravestones. It was called Lutheran Cemetery at that time. {Information obtained from OK County Cemetery Index - compiled by OK County HCE Genealogy Group, page 43.}
