Bethel Evangelical Cemetery
Plowville, Robeson Twp, Berks County, Pennsylvania

Lat: 40° 12' 16"N, Lon: 75° 54' 32"W

Submitted by Jerry Brown, May 17, 2003 [gnb35@ptd.net]. Total records = 39.

The cemetery is west of Route 10, 1 mile south of Plowville PA, on a small road called Lilly road.

Bethel Evangelical Church was built in 1845 and rebuilt in 1872. The Church is long gone. Only the tombstones and a stone marker with a bronze plaque remain.

This cemetery began about 1846 and according to the burials ceased to be active about 1876.

I have compared my work with previous readings by Mrs. C.M. Steinmetz and Miss Minnie Deturck, May 1936 and by G. N. Brown, Oct 1999.

I have compiled these records from headstone readings and the above references, completing the work on Feb 20, 2004.
