Contributed by Rella Gleaton Apr 24, 2001 [rella@ultraplix.com].
Total records = 116.

From Starbuck go approximately 1/4 mile South from the bridge crossing the Toucannon River then turn West onto Cemetery Road. It is located on a hill, is grassed with a sprinkler system and the older section at the bottom of the hill has trees.

Starbuck Cemetery is located just out of the small town of Starbuck in Columbia County. It is fenced with barbed wire, has two entrances, but no gates.

There are 116 burials, with the earliest 1886 and the latest, with two, in 2000. Many of these older headstones have beautiful poems on them. Notable is the headstone of Nae Geer and his wife Phebe Ruth Turner who ran the old wooden cabled Lyon's Ferry for many years. It was eventually replaced with a bridge. The old ferry is docked at the Lyon's Ferry State Park for all to see.
