Groff Eshelman Cemetery, Eden Township, Lancaster Co Pa

The following is copied from transcription list done by Waltanna Scott, at the time she took the inscriptions she notes the cemetery was used to pasture horses.. I photographed any stones that could be read even partially. There were a few unreadable and footstones which were not photographed.

There was work done on this cemetery since this inscription list was taken and a nice fence is around the cemetery there are two photos at the bottom of the cemetery over all

photo linkThis stone I could not match to any of the inscriptions on the list, In Memory of Elizabeth ??Dau of Jacob and??, a second stone which I could not match
