Mount Zion United Brethren Church Cemetery

Location:

Witmer's Rd., south of Witmer's UMC, Union Twp., Snyder Co.

History:

"An Evangelical Church building of brick construction was erected in 1857 on a triangular plot of ground formed by three roads, near Witmer's Schoolhouse, about two miles northwest of Port Trevorton, in Union Township.  In course of time, the church passed into the possession of the Church of the United Brethren in Christ and became known as Mt. Zion's United Brethren Church.  The building was later removed.  The cemetery on the neighboring hillside is still in use." - Dunkelberger, p. 650.
