Cemetery notes and/or description:
The Enon Moravian Church had it's first sermon on April 28th, 1844 by Martin Hauser. The Church itself was first organized on March 29th, 1845. The first burial in the Church's cemetery was on July 13th, 1845. The church itself wasn't built till March 28th, 1846. There is a "stone" on the side of the church that marks this day, and is still able to be seen till this day. The church itself was burned down on January 24th, 1976 by vandals. All that is left is the stone foundation on which the church once stood upon. The cemetery itself is in poor condition. There are stones that are broken almost everywhere. There is a pile of stones in the very most southwest corner of the cemetery, about 10-15. That are just broken into pieces. In 1961 Mrs. Perry King and Mrs. Herschel E Murphy, members of the D. A. R. surveyed the entire cemetery, and recoreded every stone in the cemetery. In 1961 they described it on the survey as nicely kept and peaceful. The cemetery was only well kept in 1961 because the Church was still standing at that point. Today since there is no church, it looks like whoever mows the cemetery does not care for the stones, if one breaks while he's mowing he throws it in the pile. On August 6th, 2007 I went and visted the cemetery taking a picture of every stone I saw and could put back together. Yes there were 110 known individuals to be buried here from the 1961 survey, but there are only about 32 stones today to mark their burial. I am ashamed to say that the cemetery is in such disaray, as stones are broken. Right about behind where the old Enon Church used to stand, there is what looks to be like a old Sarcophogas/Masoleum. That is now smashed in, the top that looks like it has dates and such is in pieces. If the stone is not online then it is probably most likely gone.
