Search Silver Spring Burial Ground:

Family burial ground in Silver Spring Township, PA. On the original warranted land of Joseph Junkin and Elizabeth Wallace Junkin.
We believe this burial ground to be located near the patriarch's stone home on what is now North Locust Point Road, looking out over the town. But Joseph warranted over 400 acres, so we are not sure of the exact location.
Here is the quote that causes us to decide these are NOT Silver Spring Presbyterian Church interments.
“….Elizabeth Junkin Findley who with her babe was buried on the old house farm ……the old stone house built in 1774 at New Kingston, PA… the grandparents, the three children who died in infancy, and Elizabeth… and her child who died while they were living there are buried on the place a neat little fence surrounds their mounds”. [“Miscellaneous Sketches Concerning the Junkin Family”, George Junkin II]
Also the remnant of the family bible also lists those buried here.
