Deppen farm cemetery. This cemetery is the one left to Dr. Daris David Deppen by his father, David, grandson of Christian and Veronica and at a later date. This family cemetery did sit on the plantation belonging to Christian Ruchti in the 1700's. 1/2 mile west of Mt Pleasant, south of Pennsylvania Route 183. It is a family cemetery. It was moved to build Blue Marsh Lake on Tuppehocken Creek. Ones that were buried there are now in the Catholic Cemetery.
Susan Yerke is doing a land search now, 2012, so no more mistakes can be made by the rest of us in our search to place our family.
