To reach this cemetery from PA 616 at Hanover Junction, drive west on Shaffer Church Road for 1.7 miles, turn right onto Shaffer Road for 0.2 miles to Strickhouser Road. It is across the road from the Zion Shaffer Union Church.

This cemetery was originally a cemetery for the Zion Lutheran Church, later to become Zion Shaffer Church, with the oldest burial dating back to 1847 for August Kliendist, which was a burial before the church was organized. It is now owned and maintained by the Shaffer Union Cemetery Association. Contact: Donald Glatfelter, Association Trustee President don.red@netzero.net

The cemetery is composed of two sections separated by the northwest-southeast roadway known as Strickhouser Road. The old section lies to the east of Strickhouser Road, while the new section lies to the west of the road.

This was complied by Robert E. Miller and Floe A. Fuhrman from a combination of tombstone transcriptions completed in 2002 and these compared and/or combined with another reading done in 1932 by A.E. Starner and A. Lee Anderson.

    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.
