Greenfield (Little Hope) Cemetery


This cemetery which has also been called Little Hope Cemetery is located on Wilson Road in the village of Little Hope, in Greenfield Township, Erie County, PA. This cemetery had appeared abandoned for many years, but is now open for burials and is being well maintained.

The tombstones in this cemetery were read by the Youth Group of the Erie Temple of The Church of Latter Day Saints in the summer of 2000 and the results were compared with the reading available from 1953. Several tombstones were found that were not in the 1953 reading and several tombstones from the 1953 reading were missing. These differences are noted in this table.

The following are the people responsible for this reading:
