Society of Friends ( Quakers) Cemetery. The cemetery is small and well maintained. Schuylkill County Historical Society the cemetery in 1907.
Very few headstone are presently visible or legible. The Historical Society of Schuylkill County published an article in Vol. 1, dated 1907, on county Quakers, their meeting house and cemetery. The article stated the cemetery contained approximately 30 graves and listed the following inscriptions that were discernible in 1905: N. Bittle, Lott Evans, Phebe Evans, Samuel F. Evans, Francis N. Evans, Simon Hawley, Mary L. Hawley, Jesse S. Hawley, Albert G. Hawley, Rebecca M. Hawley, Nathan Lewis Hawley, Joseph Hulme, Beulah Hulme, Joseph Cauley Hulme, William Robinson and Mary Robinson. All but three of the stones that were present in 1905 are still there. I have not been able to locate N. Bittle, Joseph Hulme, and Joseph Cauley Hulme. There are two stones that look like military stones, that could be one of N. Bittle, for he served in the Civil War. Ellen H. Griscom's stone must have been lying down in 1905 and since been stood upright, I located it and it is very legible, and Nathan Lewis Hawley Jr. and his mother Annie Jeffrey Hawley's stones, who were buried after 1905 are there. The stones are much harder to read than in 1905, but enough is still visible to be able to tell whose stone it is. The cemetery is still about the same as it was in 1905.
