Girard Township Cemeteries

Drury Family Cemetery

Contributed by Dick Tefft


Drury Cemetery, Girard Township, Erie County, PA

This small family cemetery is located on Drury road in Girard Township, on land originally owned by Elijah Drury. The cemetery is still in use by Drury Family members. Today, owners of land that originally belonged to Elijah are required to pay a small annual fee for the maintenance of the cemetery. A check of the 1865 and 1876 Erie County Atlases shows the cemetery was once better than a mile to the east of its present location.

This listing is from a reading by Dick Tefft in 2002 with information supplied by Drury family historian, Linnie Drury Meeder.
