History: (See 1862 Atlas) Some stones were buried in a ditch and should be able to be recovered. About 1936 the Heffners, Sterling and Eugene, living on the land, removed the tombstones and put them in a ditch on the property. A stone was removed from the site to use at Kutztown University as an example of Pennsylvania culture. One stone found February, 1998, by a township supervisor was inscribed Jacob Heffner. (MHBA, ps, 616, 688 and 691 - all connected to earlier generations in Richmond Township.)
