CHRISTIAN CHURCH BURYING GROUND
West Springfield, Erie Co, PA

The Christian Church at East Springfield, Erie Co, PA, was organized with
twelve members in 1826 by Rev. Asa C Morrison and Rev Joseph Marsh.  The
church building
was built in 1839.
                (Miller, Vol. 1, pg. 526)
When the building of the Christian Church in West Springfield was torn down,
these stones were in the churchyard and were removed to the East Springfield
Cemetery and placed in a row on the north side.  The present township school
stands on the site of the church on the west side of route 6N.  It is a High
School.
