AMISH MENNONITE CHURCH CEMETERY

Situated in Elk Lick Twp. Somerset Co., PA near Amish Mennonite Church, 1/4 mile west of Niverton; 1 1/2 miles east of Springs. The cemetery of the Amish Mennonite Mensuites at Niverton, in Elk Lick Twp. Was started about 1882. Prior to this date this denomination had no regular houses of warship, but held their meetings in the dwelling houses of the members. Funeral services were also held in dwelling houses, therefore there were scattered local grave yards started in many sections. In 1881 this church built 4 church houses (generally called meeting houses). One at Niverton, one near Summit Mills and two in Garrett Co., MD. Cemeteries were soon started at all of these churches, where practically all of their interments are now made.
