This is the final of three transcriptions of the tombstones in the White Church Cemetery.  Most of the stones in this section were relocated when the US Army Corps of Engineers filled Raystown Lake.  I have included the cemetery they were moved from if the marker still exists.  Many of these stones are old, weathered, and very hard to read. I have tried to be as accurate as possible.


I have family connections to many of the people buried in this cemetery, and I would be happy to share any additional information I might have.  - Debbie Fisher
