Cemetery Transcriptions in Wayne and Pike Counties (PA)

Most of the cemeteries are a complete listing of those buried. If this is not the case, it is mentioned on the cemetery page itself.

I am also interested in adding information about the individuals buried in these cemeteries. Where applicable, I have added information gathered from other sources in the "other info" column. Please e-mail me if you have information you would like to add, or if you see something is incorrect. Thanks!

In the "other notes" section I have begun to add census info I believe to be correct to the family. Please keep in mind that these are educated guesses and are not proven to be the same individuals. I post this information solely to help those who may be interested. Census info can be found at the DSD Data link, see the bottom of this page. Any information that is included like this [other info] is information I believe to be true and is not printed on the stone. Any info that is in the table without the brackets is actually on the stone itself.
