Tradition notes that it was Jacob Keiser who donated the land for the cemetery. Further research to be conducted.
The following information is what has been gathered to determine Jacob's residency:
Early assessment Records for Central PA, compiled by Mary Belle Lontz: 1790 Penn Twp.: Jacob Keiser; 1796 Mahantango Twp.: Jacob Keiser; 1808 Mahantango Twp.: Jacob Keysor. Source: Annals of Buffalo Valley, by John Blair Linn, page 308: List of residents of Mahantango Twp., made in 1796: Jacob Keiser's name appears. He is listed in the 1820 US PA census for Washington Twp., Union county, PA. This township is now located in what is today Snyder county. Jacob listed his age as "over 45 years".
