Cemetery notes and/or description:
The Dreibelbis Family Cemetery was reclaimed by the Dreibelbis 200th Anniversary Committee in 1934; the cemetery was mowed, fenced, and a monument was set by the committee that year in celebration of the 200th anniversary of John Jacob Dreibelbis' arrival in America. The monument has the following names inscribed on it:

--John Jacob Dreibelbis (1714-1761) [the birth year is incorrect--records have shown that J.J.D. was born 1709] ----his wife Mary (1720-1785) [this is noted by the Dreibelbis Cousins of America to be incorrect--J.J.D.'s second wife was Barbara Burkhart; the dates are correct]
--John Jacob's son, Abraham B. Dreibelbis (1749-1803)
--Abraham's wife, Anna (1751-1806)
--Abraham's son, Daniel R. Dreibelbis (1768-1843)
--Daniel's wife Magdalena nee Kieffer (1774-1829)
--Daniel's son Martin Dreibelbis (1844-1846)
--Abraham's son, Joseph Dreibelbis (1780-1842)
--Joseph's wife, Mary (1782-1838)

There are 3 original headstones, which the committee laid on the ground behind the monument, those of Daniel, Magdalena, and Martin.

It is likely that other Dreibelbis family members are buried in the cemetery, but no other markers were identified.

In addition, it is said that 11 Native Americans and 1 slave are also buried in the cemetery. [source for above: "John Jacob Dreibelbis Family of America 1732-1990" by Harvey C. Dreibelbis; Harrowwood Books; 1991)
