Some Northern Chester County History & Genealogy

St. Peter’s, Pikeland Cemetery
Clover Mill Road, West Pikeland Twp.,
Chester County, Pennsylvania.

OLD SECTION,
Rows 1 - 29,
between the upper and lower churches.
(Surveyed West to East.)
2004-2005 by Tim Krystopa.

On 16th May 1771, Michael King and Henry Hippel, both of Pikeland, deeded to Peter Hartman, George Emrey, Conrad Miller and Adam Moses, 1 acre and 53 perches, for to "build a Church of the Lutheran Denomination thereon and other Buildings as Said Denomination shall think fit, and to make a Grave Yard to bury their Dead ..." (One undivided half part of this land was sold to the Reformed Congregation in 1811.) This graveyard was though, in use before that time. The oldest legible markers (old fieldstones) date from 1766 when several members of the Fus family were buried here. There is a large open space below the rows of fieldstones. The sextons' list of burials (1826-1877) also contains the names of many people who have no legible markers. In 1845, additional land was purchased to enlarge the cemetery. There was at one time, a stone wall along the side of the road. It contained three marble markers, - the first, '1847,' may have been when the wall was built; the second, 'M. K.,' probably stands for Michael King (this stone has been lost); the third, 'Christoph Schmidt,' was (at least in 1940) in the possession of the churches. The stone wall was torn down in 1919. The iron fence was probably put up about that time.

Note that this survey does not include the newer graves in the section farthest away from Clover Mill Road. This would be all graves below the birdhouse. Several sources were used to discern correct dates where they were in question. These included the sextons' list of burials, St. Peter's Pikeland Lutheran Church Death Records, 'Funerals attended by Rev. Jesse Knipe', other church records which noted burials at Pikeland, an earlier survey of this cemetery, and the index to Chester County probate records.

All of the stones listed on this page have been photographed. If you need a picture, or feel that something needs to be corrected, please email me. Finally, I would like to thank Thelma Carter, for everything ...
