This burial plot
includes the families of Michael Greider (-1788) and
Elizabeth Hess (-1800) and Michael Greider (1759-1825)
and Susanna Hess Huber (1763-1833). It was located on a
high point about 400 yards north of the the "Old Second
Lock Mill Site".
According to Tom Shenk
(via Gloria Kreider Bowman), the cemetery was moved out
of an orchard years ago. Six headstones were placed in a
cement square. In 1994 only [four] headstones remain and
the bottom portion of another.
The original burial
plot probably contained the grave of Jacob Greider
(ca.1693-1758), immigrant from Ittlingen, Germany.
