Cemetery notes and/or description:
Like other area cemeteries, Jere Zeamer first recorded the headstones in 1905. At that time he noted:

"The present church edifice at this place was erected in 1876. It is of brick, large, and in good condition and very beautifully located. The view of the Cumberland Valley presented from it being grand. I visited this burying place and copied these inscriptions on August 3, 1905 walking to it from Shiremanstown." J. Zeamer.
The Mennonites first came to Cumberland County in the 1790ís and early 1800ís from Lancaster County and settled in Lower Allen Twp. In 1816 they constructed a meeting house on land donated by David Martin, on a hill along present day Slate Hill Rd. In 1876, a new building was constructed as well as increased cemetery land.
For many years, the cemetery next to Slate Hill Church was used as needed by members. In September, 1899, a formal charter was filed with the Court of Cumberland County for incorporation of the "Slate Hill Church and Burial Ground Association." In 1907, six more acres were added to the present cemetery.

More on the history of the church and cemetery is available in
