Notes

Due to the widening of Route 809, all graves were moved to Rader's Church Cemetery. There is a stone in the cemetery indicating that 29 unmarked graves from D. C. Acker place on Route 809 (Trissels Road) were moved in 1974. Stone is in the new section by the church along Raders Church Road. In 1967 J. Robert Swank noted: "Across Route 809 from the Kline Family Cemetery on the Acker place was a plot on which two or more of the Rader Family were buried. Isaac Acker bought 44 acres from the Raders, other acres were sold to the Pennypackers. George Rader married 19 May 1844 to Nancy Sites dau of Peter Sites."
