Total records = 19.
Rt. I80 West toward Williamsport, PA, exit Rt. 87, Montoursville, PA. Turn left from the ramp and continue 1/2 to a mile down the road. There is a large well-kept red barn on the left side of the road and the cemetery is in the middle of a field just beyond the house and barn. The cemetery has a black iron fence around it and a tall tombstone is visible from the road.
My third and fourth great grandfathers are buried in this cemetery. Its history has been written in "Now and Then" a quarterly magazine of history, biography, and genealogy, Volume XI, April 1955, Number Four. Article written by M. Elizabeth Whitacre, of Media, PA.
The cemetery is in poor condition and the land is owned by Connie Heim who lives in Colorado. The land originally belonged to Henry Scott. No room for any further burials.
You can contact me, at 570-322-4698 if you have difficulty locating the cemetery.
There are several stones that are unreadable, and according to records, there are a few Indians buried there, also. These records come from the tombstones when I visited the cemetery in 2000.
