Search First Reformed Dutch Church Cemetery (Defunct):

The congregation of the First Dutch Reformed Church maintained a cemetery on the northeast corner of Franklin Square (bounded by 8th and 7th streets and Race and Vine streets) from 1741 until 1835, when the city reclaimed the land for use as a park. At that time, some of the bodies were moved to a new graveyard at 16th and Cherry streets, while the gravestones for others were laid flat and covered over. The congregation later replaced the Cherry Street graveyard with a lot in West Laurel Hill Cemetery, which it purchased with the help of money awarded by the city.
