Harbor Creek Presbyterian Cemetery

Contributed by Beth Simmons


According to Beth Simmons, the old Harbor Creek Presbyterian Church Cemetery was on land donated by Judah Colt in 1832 for the original church location. The Harbor Creek Post Office occupies that site now. Before the building of the post office, the pastor of the Presbyterian Church "faced the hardest job of his career", tracing the records of the burials, finding the next of kin, and transplanting the settlers’ bodies in the South Harbor Creek Methodist yard. At the time of the sale of the property, the graveyard was almost unrecognizable. Few stones remained and most of the sites had sunken over collapsed caskets. The list below has been provided by Beth and should be as compiled at the time of relocation.
