A new list of missing cemeteries

Wow time flies when you're having fun. I've been quite lucky the last couple of months in locating some of the smaller family cemeteries in the county. This past weekend I found the Brown Family Cemetery #1, which is just over the Washington County line. The land owner was quite nice and lead me directly to the cemetery. Since I was in the area, and Holdcraft had documented it, I also photographed the Mount Zion United Methodist Church cemetery.

Following those two cemetery finds I went looking for other cemeteries in the Sabillasville area. I now know where the Harbaugh family cemetery is, but the property owners were not home and I wasn't able to document it. Hopefully the next time I stop by they will be home.

I've also discovered a few cemeteries where the stones have been moved. The Kline family, [9A], was moved to Saint Marks cemetery in Wolfsville, while the Maugans family cemetery, [12A], was moved to the nearby Salem cemetery in Wolfsville. When Holdcraft wrote his book he knew a few cemeteries were being moved and said where they had been moved to. The Kemp family cemetery, [202], stones were moved to Mount Olivet, though either one of the stones wasn't moved or the Mount Olivet database does have it listed as I wasn't able to find it.

Part of the reason I've been doing this project it to see what stones are still around, which ones have been lost, and at times find new stones. Below is a new list of cemeteries I have not yet located. Some I've been given coordinates for but I haven't yet been to. Others I know most likely no longer exist, while others may have been moved to a new cemetery. If you happen to know of any of these cemeteries please let me know.
