Cherry Grove Cemetery
Nordmont, PA

Original posting: August 20, 2001

Transcribed and subsequently updated by our local Sullivan County cemetery research team.
The cemetery lies west of L.R. 15, south of Nordmont. As in every cemetery, there are stones that cannot easily, if at all, be read. Compare this listing with the accompanying Index of surnames from the Sullivan County Historical Society. Please let us know of any additions or corrections.

As you will see at the end of the listing, there is a marker for emigrant Hungarian laborers killed in a fire in 1886 while building the railroad. Due to the generous efforts of Kathy (Tilley) Pritchard of Nordmont, PA, we are able to append a historical note as well that tells the story behind this sad event.

Beginning in February 2005, Deb Wilson offered to post pictures of selected tombstones and markers from this cemetery. She also contributed photographs in May 2007, July 2008, August 2009 and August 2010. We have posted these pictures as they became available and are appreciative of Deb's efforts in this regard. She is a descendant of the Keeler family from the Davidson/Nordmont area. There are also links to two sets of Deb's beautiful photos of the Cherry Grove Chapel itself near the top of Allen E. Tilley's Cherry Grove Chapel: 1892-1992, the chapel history which is discussed more below.

In addition, there are two pictures here showing the front and back of the stone for Henry and Nancy (Keeler) Kohersparger, which were taken by Mike Krause. There is also a photo provided by Doug McCarty for the joint marker of his grandparents, James S. and Nora E. (Little) Laird.

You will also find a link to several photos taken by Lynn Franklin of a unique old funeral card for Carl Rex Masteller, who died at age seven months in 1910. The story is told and the link provided in a footnote to the following listing.

Beginning in October 2009, the Sullivan County Historical Society and Museum (SCHS&M) provided an update that includes previously unlisted interments, as well as addtional information on several of the interments that we did have. This information was extracted from current and old records in the possesssion of that organization. We have color coded those entries in crimson, and express our sincere appreciaton for this information to our colleagues at SCHS&M.

In September 2005, Deb Wilson also took pictures of Barbara's ancestors. They are provided on this page as well, and the surnames of those ancestors have been colored maroon in the transcription list below. Deb's photographs of other selected grave markers are simply linked to the associated photograph without any addtional coloring highlights.

Editor's Note: Per Doug McCarty, their grandson and a member of "the Hillsgrove McCartys", in January 2009, "James was a long time resident of Muncy Valley, having a blacksmith shop at the foot of the Eagles Mere mountain road, near the Marquart farm. I believe that in their early marriage they lived "near the coal mines" between Eagles Mere and Hillsgrove. An interesting item of family lore, passed on and probably embellished along the way, but maybe not, is as follows. Grandad Laird (James, that is) was blind in his left eye as the result of a logging accident as a very young man. I was told that a team of horses skidding logs dragged a log over his head after he had fallen. The doctor picked pieces of bone out of his brain, and fashioned a silver plate to replace the missing skull bone, and gave him a year to live. He lived another 60 or 65 years, depending on when this happened." James and Nora can also be found as adolescents in the 1900 Federal Census for Davidson Township. James was living with his grandparents because his father had drowned at age 35.

The Hungarian Marker

 

1886

 

Here lie the bodies of six Hungarian laborers who died in a tragic fire in the year 1886 while building the Williamsport & North Branch Railroad. Their identity is known only to God.**

    ** Editor's Note: In August 2007, Kathy Prichard provided their names, obtained from railroad records: John Felichsko, Joseph Meecloch, Paul Kolokoy, Michael Feltovich, Fetzco Schikiski, Peter Kromo and George Krovins.

** Carl Rex Masteller:

Per Milly Gowdy on 08/31/2008:
I am a descendant of Jefferson Alexander and Catherine Elizabeth (Elrsten) Masteller, the parents of Carl Rex. I have in my possession, what I am assuming is a funeral card or memorial to Carl Rex Masteller. Charles Robinson, now deceased, gave it to me several years ago. His mother, Mary (Masteller) Robinson, was my great-aunt. It measures 16 X 22 inches and is very fragile. There are pieces missing from the edges and there are several cracks in the paper. The page is decorated with angels, cherubs, flowers, butterflies, a cross, and an oval surrounded with olive branches, with the words "At Rest" over a cross. Also, included with the funeral card were two small pieces of shiny black paper that were glued onto two narrow strips of cardboard.
The first piece, which is missing part of the right hand side, has the following etched onto it:

Carl R. Masteller
Died Aug. 1910
Age = 7 Mo 10 Da

The second piece has the following written on it:

We loved him, yes, we loved him,
But angels loved him more,
And they have sweetly called him
To yonder shining shore
The golden gates were opened
A gentle voice said "come"!
And with farewells unspoken
He calmly entered home.

On the tombstone, the death year for Carl Rex was 1909, which very well could have been incorrectly etched on the tombstone by the stone mason, or the information entered on the shiny black paper was incorrect. I need to do some research to find out which year of birth and death was correct and I will respond when I find the correct year.
I would like to share the funeral card with everyone, and will be donating it to the Sullivan County Historical Society.

Note: Per Melanie Norton of the Sullivan County Historical Society:
..... we've had a few such cases with smaller funeral cards and the clothes are cut from the article of clothing the deceased is wearing upon burial (or that which they were wearing on the day of death) and then given to an immediate family member. When I was first told this I thought it was a bit morbid, but upon thinking further it began to dawn on me that for the close relatives it would be a form of confort.

In September 2008, Lynn Franklin scanned the Masteller Funeral Card for this site and then she and her husband Bob Sweeney forwarded the card to the SCHS and Museum for a permanent home.

++Information from Barbara Delong Strong:

I have 14 relatives in Cherry Grove Cemetery:

John Keeler 1764-1849 is my 4th g grandfather and the father of
Susan Keeler Robbins 1804-1888 who is the spouse of W.J.(William) Robbins 1799-1876 who were the parents of
Joseph C Robbins 1834-1898 who was the father of
Alice May Robbins Diltz 1859-1914 whose spouse was Elias Willets Diltz 1865-1928.

Gearhart Fritz 1839-1918 was my great grandfather and his wife was (Amanda) Melissa Hess 1845-1909, the daughter of Levi Hess 1824-1898
Gearhart and Melissa were the parents of 11 children:
(Samuel) Ellis Fritz 1866-1948
Laura Fritz 1873-1925
(Lydia) Agnes Foust 1877-1952 whose spouse was Frederick J. Foust 1877-1952
and last is Willis Fritz 1882-1954

Here is an interesting piece of information:
Gearhart's son Herman was my grandfather and
his wife Hazel Diltz was the daughter of Elias and Alice (Robbins) Diltz. They are buried in Orangeville, PA.

Editor's Note: The "Hungarians"

My father was Allen E. Tilley. He was a native of Nordmont. His family, the Botsfords, settled outside of Elk Lick, which is what Nordmont was known as in the beginning, in 1827. Nordmont was Lower Elk Lick, and the area where Cherry Grove sits was Upper Elk Lick, named for the natural salt deposits that attracted large herds of elk in the 1800's. The Botsfords were one of two original settler families that bought land from two men who broke through into the area in the early 1820's to tap the maple trees in the Cherry Grove area. The other family was the Bostons.
I believe my father placed the plaque for the Hungarians at the Cherry Grove Cemetery in the late '80's. I don't have the exact year. He said he always felt bad that the men lay there in an unmarked area. They had died while employed to make the railroad a reality, which benefitted the area immensely and they were not even recognized in death, and this bothered him. So he poured the footer, had the plaque made, and placed it there in their memory.
The story behind the Hungarians goes like this. There was a boarding house in Nordmont. Some of the men who were not local and who were working on the W and NB Railroad lived there. The Hungarians who died were upstairs sleeping. There was a card game going on downstairs with plenty of drinking. Apparently, a fight broke out, a kerosene lantern was upset, and those downstairs were the only ones that got out. Whether the ones upstairs who died were drinking earlier and were passed out and didn't know the place was on fire is unknown. But they were killed in the fire.
Anyway, the local citiens couldn't agree on how or where to bury the victims, so they wrapped the bodies in blankets (there wasn't much left to bury) and placed them in one mass grave in that section which was "Potter's Field", so to speak. Of course, since the cemetery grew over the past 100 years, lots were sold all around the Hungarians, so that today they rest surrounded by everyone else. If you look on the map inside the chapel you can see the area marked off where they lie.

You can read more about the Cherry Grove area and its history in Allen E. Tilley's Cherry Grove Chapel: 1892-1992, written by my late father.

** Editor's Note: Mary (Sones) Fiester, daughter of George Washington Sones and Ann Lowe, was born in 1813 in Muncy Creek Township. She married Benjamin Fiester, son of Jacob Fiester and Mary Robb, on November 7, 1833 in Muncy Creek [Source: Muncy Telegraph, November 12, 1833]. He was born on September 4, 1811 in Muncy Creek and died in 1875 in Buffalo, NY. They had seven children together.

We do not know the circumstances under which Benjamin and Mary were estranged so that he ended up in Buffalo and she stayed in the Sullivan County area. We do know that the Fiester family has an old and deep tradition in this part of Pennsylvania. For example, another Benjamin Feister, perhaps the uncle of the husband of Mary Sones, was a founding settler in the Sonestown area. He was the son of Godfrey and Mary Magdalena (Kepner) Fiester and the husband of Mary Harriott. These Fiester ancestors are all interred at Immanuel Lutheran Cemetery in Muncy, Lycoming County, PA. You can learn more about them and see several pictures at the Find a Grave Site for Fiesters Buried in Pennsylvania.

**** Editor's Note: In October 2008, we received a touching query involving Catherine May, which we reproduce in part here in the interest of preserving the memory of a local personality who might otherwise be lost to time:

When I was a child, and up into my early teens, my grandfather, Paul Zerbe would take me to visit with Catherine May on the May Road in Nordmont, PA. He would go up with his friend Ken Miller (our family doctor) to hunt in the fall. In summer, he and my grandmother, Mae Zerbe, would take us to visit with Mrs. May. I loved her house and her barn! I even loved the outhouse. We would pick huckleberries, make pies and bake them in the woodstove. Mrs. May is buried in the Cherry Grove Cemetery.
I would like to know if her house is occupied and by whom. Is the wood stove still around? The stove in the parlor? I would love to see the house and the town again, or to see people who may have known my "Poppop" (or even me). I know there was a family who had a farm down the road. They were the Hoffmans and my Poppop used to take us to ďHoffísĒ farm to visit and ride horses.
My parents and Poppop had bought lots on the hill behind Mrs. Mayís house. When I went to ask about what they planned to do with them, they told me that had sold them to someone without talking to me first in 1980! I was heartbroken.
Itís a bit of a drive from here and I wouldnít want to barge in on anyone. Iíve tried to find out more information on the internet, but have been unsuccessful. My time at Mrs. Mayís did a lot to shape my life and the kind of person Iíve become. I loved Mrs. May very much and she was the kindest, strongest woman. She and my Poppop taught me to love the outdoors, live simply, and to cherish the cast iron pans I inherited from Poppop.
I know the house is still there because you can see it on Google Earth. I so loved the house and sitting on the porch with Mrs. May and my "Nana". Any and all help will be greatly appreciated and can help me complete my family tree, too, since I could get some stories about my Nana and Poppop from the locals.
I thank you for anything you can do to help! Itís wonderful there are people like you keeping family history alive. I am presently working on putting together my family histories and recently ďrescuedĒ some photos from the 1800ís that my dad was ready to throw away!!!! They are my momís father as a baby, his mother, and his grandparents!

*@* Editor's Note: John Keeler, Sr. (1764-1849), son of Ebenezer Keeler (1721-1785) and Nancy Ann (McNeal) Keeler (1739-1818), was born in Goshen, Orange County, NY and served in the Revolutionary War. There is actually a Pension Application on file. In fact, his descendants campaigned into the twentieth century for an extension of that pension to one of his daughters, as indicated in the pension file records. John was married twice, first to Elizabeth Smith (1766-1826), whom he married in Wallkill Township, Ulster County, NY, in 1795. After she died, he married Eleanor Wilson (1795-1844) in 1833. She died in 1844. While John is buried at Cherry Grove Cemetery, as listed above, the resting places of his two wives are not known. It is likely that his first wife is buried either on the family farm near Sugarloaf Township, Columbia County, PA or perhaps in one of the local cemeteries.
In addition to the three children of John and Elizabeth interred at Cherry Grove, there were other offspring of both the first and second marriages. As listed in Ancestors of Douglas J. Weaver, John and Elizabeth had twelve children altogether and John and Eleanor had two.
