thanks for the web site info. Several years ago I worked on the John Stroup family in Paint twp and I did some inquiry about his burial place.
I had received info that the stones were found behind the Maxey school. I have talked to some of the people who have lived in the area for some time and no one remembers a cemetery there.
I talked with a Stroup descendant who thought they were buried in the Correll Cemetery. which does tie in with the Linson family.
John Stroup settled on the Peter Buffenbarger land, I know that there was a cemtery on the Buffenbarger land which would have been close to where John Stroup lived. I saw the reference to the Crawford Farm cemetery, there is a cemetery on Crawford RD in which Linson Family connections are buried. but no listing for John Stroup and we still have the cemetery markers on Correll- Maxey Rd
When Peter Buffenbarger died he owned 4200 acres of land and his wife owned 700 acres( a gift from Peter). They had two daughters; his wife and daughters moved to NY after his death and one of his daughters married a Crawford. I am wondering if the Crawford Farm Cemetery then refers to the old Buffenbarger cemetery. Mrs Buffenbarger's brother managed the farm for her. Their family name was Hutson.
The Buffenbarger Cemetery was plowed over by a later farm owner and the cemetery stones were later used as weight on a field drag.( a farm implement used to break up clods of dirt) since some of the Buffenbarger land stretched between Correll-Maxey RD and Hutson Rd the stones could have been left anywhere on the property when they were no longer needed.
The Buffenbarger home stood on Hutson Rd. The only thing there now is some grain bins. The cemetery was located south of the house and then to the west. the John Stroup farm was located on Hutson and Linson RD. south of the cemetery.
