Dixon Cemetery

Lockport, Oliver Township, Mifflin County Pennsylvania


Information from The Cemeteries of Mifflin County, MCHS




To get to this cemetery from Lewistown, go west from Lewistown about 5 miles, turn left on MIDDLE ROAD (T355), proceed 1/2 mile and turn right on LOCKPORT ROAD (TR710), proceed 1/2 mile and turn left on 3 LOCKS ROAD (TR348), proceed 1/2 mile and cemetery is on right across from abandoned house. It is very overgrown, but the farmer from the adjacent farm mows around it once or twice a season.

From the 6 Tombstones in this cemetery, I copied the following inscriptions in April 1998. (There do appear to me several unmaked graves in this area) Contributor: Douglas Armstrong
