"This Cemetery was also known as Penns Park Methodist-Episcopal Church Cemetery. I have done a lot of research on this cemetery. I have contacted the current Pastor, former Pastor and many former members, and no records could be found. I was told that Hannah Hampton Kohl, a longtime member kept the records. Hannah died in 1981 and the records have been lost. So I did research at the Spruance Library in Doylestown, PA. I found records for this cemetery that had been transcribed in 1980. So I used these records. My parents and I went to the cemetery and took pictures of the existing stones. We took photos of 63 headstones, but 3 are worn blank. Please Note : Sometime in the 1970’s some of the headstones were pulled out to make room for more parking. In 1983 the church purchased the property next door, and were able to expand the parking lot there. Around this same time, some church members put the headstones back into the cemetery. So I am not sure if the headstones are in their original locations. Also during my research, I learned about another cemetery in Penns Park called Logtown Cemetery. Very Early Wrightstown settlers were buried here. I have found no record for this cemetery, but I have found burial records for individuals who were buried in this Logtown Cemetery. Penns Park Methodist-Episcopal Church Cemetery’s first burial took place in 1821."
