Cemetery Records

Records below were originally compiled from tombstone inscriptions by Michael Bernstein and archived on USGenWeb Archives in 2001. Bernstein left the following description of the cemetery...

"Burial groung on the old Oliver Getman Place (NW corner of Frederick Getman Homestead). This cemetery is located on the very end of School Street. Go past the old Ephratah School, all the way to the end of School Street where it bears to the right. There is an old barn and a house located there, go past the house up into the field, bearing to the left where the road, now a path, forks. Go up the hill and the burial ground is located on the righthand side of the path, at the very top of the hill. It is extremely overgrown, and the stones are difficult to read, but it is a noticable cemetery. It definately show it's lack of attention throughout the years."

Notes at the end of each records are from Bernstein's observation or knowledge of the family.

    What makes us Different?

    Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

    Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
