From the Colonial Molls - Upon his death in in 1795, Johannes Moll was buried first in the original Zion Cemetery located at the southeast corner of the Central Square, 7th and Hamilton streets. This was a very small cemetery even in colonial times, and lots in the cemetery would be reserved for senior church members of the congregation who would undoubtedly have known about the role of the church during the War of Independence. In 1846, this Cemetery was moved to a new location along the north side of Linden street @ 10th, and is now called "The Old Allentown Cemetery". The exact location of both Johannes and Lydia (Rinker) Moll's graves are today unknown, as the writing on many of the old tombstones have been lost over the passage of time. 18th century grave markers in the Old Allentown Cemetery, 10th & Linden Streets, May 2002.
