|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Mt. Zion Schwabs Church was a Union Church of Lutheran and German Reformed congregations. It was originally "Schwabs"; afterwards called "Swopes", the name of a nearby family; and finally "Zion". The church is just north of the Reagantown road (Rt 981), on the Zion Church (Lotus) Rd, about 1.3 miles west of Alverton. The church was organized in 1789, and services were conducted in German until 1858 when English was introduced.
