Yoder II Cemetery


Situated in Stonycreek Twp., Somerset Co., PA., on the Lester Pyle farm, near line of Ephraim Walker, Josiah Weigle, and Frank Cable farms adjoining lands of David Snyder and Uriah Lehman farms.

Transcribed from WPA records by Nancy Hallberg.

6 adult graves. 1 child grave is distinctly visible, not inscribed. Also said to contain in all 13 graves, some are partly destroyed due to strip mining. Said to be Yoder families. Also about 4 rods north of this cemetery, a Mrs. Yoder was buried who committed suicide by hanging about 1860. Her lone grave was enclosed by a rather elaborate stone wall now entirely destroyed. Stripping employees said they saw bones going over the ground embankment.

July 22, 1946.
