Bethel Methodist Church, Fulton Township Lancaster County Pa

This cemetery was typed first from an inscription list done in the early 1960's. The links on the stone numbers will bring up the photo of that stone. The photos were taken recently(May 2000) Some stones on the list are no longer there and I have some stones that were not on the list. The rows in this cemetery are listed as best as I could . There are large spaces from the far left stone to the stones on the right, probably unmarked grave or ones which no longer have stones.The original list all family groups were together as one listing no matter where the were in the cemetery and had to be put as separate stones to make the links for the pictures.
