This cemetery lies at the top of a hill on the north side of Brubaker Valley Road, just west of the intersection with route 322. It served as a burial ground for the Erb, Brubaker, Eby, and Schenck family before the Steinmetz family began using it. Reuben Steinmetz was married to Samuel Shenk's daughter and came in possession of the cemetery in 1853. He died in 1859 and the cemetery fell into Hess hands. After that, there were few burials except for members of the Steinmetz family.

It was restored by Baron Stiegel Lions Club 1979. There are no longer any burials in this cemetery.

All remaining stones have been photographed.
