graves at Bethany Lutheran in Lancaster County PA

  of 338

In todays Intelligencer Journal, Lancaster, PA there was an article about a cemetary in nearby Millersville, PA. In 1971 the Millersville Evengelical Menonite Church removed approximately 37 gravestones and paved over a burial ground of the former Bethany Lutheran church. The stones were stored in the church basement until it was demolished recently and they were brought back out to the parking lot. There is a local group from Ephrata PA called Grave Concern that is addressing the situation and trying to get the graveyard restored. Most of the original stones were pictured stacked up apparently by the lot. The burials were from 1802 to 1898. The following names were on a group marker placed when the stones were pulled up.
