The history of St. John (Lifting High the Cross...for 200 Years,
by Mark Smith has this to say about the men of St. Johns:

It seems appropriate in a church history to attempt to account for the fallen soldiers of the congregation. Catawba County sent many men into this war effort, and Cline's Township sent seventy-two percent of its able bodied men of proper age into service for the Confederacy. The St. John's congregations certainly did no small part. The following list of names is derived from the funerals performed by P. C. Henkel and J. M. Smith during this era, plus information preserved by surviving cemetery markers. These were compared to the lists of names in Hahn's, "Catawba Soldiers of the Civil War." There are no aspirations that this list approaches completeness, as the funeral listings from Tennessee Synod Re-Organized Pastor Adam Miller, Jr. and the German Reformed Pastor could not be located for complement; however, the extensive list should offer ample insight into the wide-spread and cruel devastation to families during the dark days of the War Between the States.

Any doubt that the community reeled in the wake of the Civil War should be dispelled by the list of names above. Of those that returned, many brought with them the wounds, injuries, loss of limbs, etc., that became life-long reminders of these four years. [LHTC pg. 196]
