Shepherd Church Cemetery



Shepherd Church Cemetery
Cumberland Township, Greene County, Pennsylvania.
This is a copy of the tombstone inscriptions in the old and abandoned cemetery.  I copied these inscriptions in1962.  It is quite possible that many of the tombstones no longer exist.  It is probably one of the oldest cemeteries in Greene County as the oldest burial that I have found was in 1806 and I believe that the latest burial was in 1874.
