St. John's Lutheran Cemetery
Wilmot, PA
Remote rural southeastern Bradford County, nine miles from Dushore


May 4, 2003
Transcribed by our local cemetery research team and subsequently updated by Bob Sweeney
The cemetery sits across the road from St. John's Lutheran Church. The church itself is a remarkably beautiful structure, even after more than a century of service. The stones in St. John's are often in terrible condition. There are so many that can't be read because they are broken or worn so badly that we could not be certain of the identities of the individuals memorialized. Here is just one example of such an "unknown stone". This is the best we could do.

In June 2006, Deb Wilson took several pictures of some of the stones at this cemetery, and they are linked to the records below. We are grateful to her for this service. Deb is a descendant of the Keeler family that lived in Davidson and she has contributed pictures of the markers at Cherry Grove Cemetery in Nordmont, Sacred Heart Cemetery in Laporte and other locations as well.
