Search Hauck-Fry Cemetery:

This small cemetery is located in the middle of a cornfield at 179 Meadow Valley Road, Ephrata, Pa.
A total of twenty-nine legible tombstones were remaining on October 13, 1975, when Clarence E. Spohn recorded the inscriptions on the stones. He could find no name for the cemetery and called it the Hauck-Fry Cemetery because those were the surnames of the majority of the people buried here.
Catharine Sauter, in her will (recorded in the Lancaster County Archives Book U Vol. 1 Pg 146) specifically stated that she was to be buried "in John Becker's burying ground and of the Haucks beside my late husband John. W. Sauter."
In August 2010 only fourteen of the stones Mr. Spohn had seen were still visible. The cemetery is badly in need of repair and restoration.
