Felgar Cemetery - Saltlick Twp.

Transcribed from tombstones by Ken O'Neal

Directions: To find it, take Rt 711 to Davistown. About 3/10 mile after passing the Davistown Church, turn left onto Hopewell Road. As you crest the hill you will see a sign on the left for "MAPLE LANE FARM, est. 1893". Turn left on lane and continue about 2/10 mile. Bear right and go to house at end of lane. Cemetery is in woods behind house. There are several unmarked fieldstones. It appears there are more stones in this cemetery, but none are standing now. I was told that legend has it that there was a house in a nearby field that burned in the late 1800s and that several children died in the fire and are buried in this cemetery, names unknown.
