QUAKER CEMETERY

Located in Rush township in the town of North Lewisburg.  This cemetery was walked by Linda Ellis recently and noted many stones and dates missed by the original DAR transcriptions. Additions and corrections noted by (*). Linda may be contacted at LJELLIS_2000@yahoo.com. Linda sent some photos also.
NOTE concerning DAR readings
from Karen Heber: DAR was tasked with certain things to identify.  They normally did not write down children, infants or single individuals.  Their objective was married people and those who served in the military.  That is why many of the readings differ so drastically from other readings done later.  However, some of the DAR representatives “read the whole cemetery”.  Again, they did not use interment or lot records and were subjective at their writings. Please be aware there are dozens of inaccuracies and dis-information from these readings.
