1. Bethany Lutheran Cemetery (36): Most of this cemetery was destroyed during the 1960s to make room for a parking lot. It is marked by a memorial on the south side of W Frederick St, Millersville, which marks the names and dates of the people buried there. Apparently the actual gravestones had been stored in the basement of the church. In 2001 the church was dismantled, and the location of the gravestones at present is uncertain. <see Mapquest map>.
