|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The correct name for the cemetery you list as Marvin United Methodist Church Cemetery is Black Lick Cemetery. Yes it is next to the present Marvin Church but it is NOT part of the church. It is owned and ran by the the Black Lick Cemetery Assoc. It was created by the Lutheran church and Methodist church on Black Lick Rd with both churches selling plots to their members with a common plot on each side for members/people not wanting a full plot. If you stand with the church on your right, the right side of the cemetery was the Methodist side ( next to the old road) and the left the Lutheran side. Knowing this will help you find which church your family used. later the cemetery was added to with more land being added to the left side next to the present Black Lick RD and along the back. About five years ago a new section of land was added along the back of the cemetery. These new sections are open to all. The cemetery has a number of markers of blocks with plots numbers which shows that a person is there with no formal marker.
