Search Delilah Younkin Cemetery:

Earliest *recorded* burial 1852
Last recorded burial 1951, with Alonzo Klink.
WPA reported 17 adult graves without an engraved stone and 8 childrens graves in the census taken in the 1930's.
Cemetery is likely much older than it appears. From the number of depressions and fieldstone markers, the census would seem to be much higher than what the WPA estimated. It appears that it became more "fashionable" to use to newer cemetery at Old Bethel church about the turn of the century. Delilah Faidley Younkin, for whom the cemetery was named for many years, is herself buried at Old Bethel.
