Templeton Private Cemetery


South of Rt. 304, Jackson Twp., Snyder Co.


"This cemetery is … between New Berlin and Dry Valley … across from the Dairy Farm [sic, now Moyers' egg farm] on the main road.  In 1915 there were about 36 headstones, all of native limestone …  There were possibly buried here St. Clairs, Hunters, VanValzahs, and Templetons."  Many years ago a farm road was run through the cemetery and the tombstones were leaned against a tree.  These few legible stones are still there, although the road itself is now abandoned. - Lontz, Union Co., Pa., 1865-1965, 1966, p. 142.
