NotesCemetery not well maintained. Notes in the Remarks column were provided by J. Robert Swank. In 1967 Mr. Swank also noted "There are many more unmarked graves than those with markers. From the book "Life of Elder John Kline" by Benjamin Fulk we learn from Elder Kline's diary: Sunday May 28, 1843. Today we held our first meeting in our new house. It has been decided to name it the Brush Meeting House. Frame building constructed by Christian Wine, John Wine and others including David Hollar. Samuel Wine, a German Baptist, raised a family in the Brush Section - had sons John, Christian, Samuel, George and Michael. The first four were preachers in the Brethren Church and Michael was a deacon. Others mentioned were the Joseph Mitchell family, Anthony Showalter family - father of John A. and grandfather of Anthony J. of music fame."
