Jackson (Little Germany) Cemetery
Sullivan County, PA

Established in 1832
mile west of intersection of Rte 220 and LR 56024, approximately mile south of Dushore on Rte 87 S. This cemetery is well off the beaten path. It is along a stone row on top of a hill, about a mile from Peace Cemetery. Among the occupants of the graveyard are Samuel Jackson and his family, among the earliest settlers of Cherry Township. You can learn more about the Jackson family, and its connection to another early family, that of Theophilus Little, at The Jackson and Little Families.
