Help - Cemetery ID Needed For The Newlin Area-Wagner Burials
Posted by: Linda (ID *****1879) Date: February 08, 2006 at 12:13:18
  of 526

I am in search of a cemetery believed to be in the Newlin area. I have pictures of the cemetery, some of the headstones, and the writing on the back says "graves of Wagner ancestors, Newlin, PA"
Some of the inscriptions are visable enough to be read, some are not. I would like to continue this research but I have not been able to identify what the name of the cemetery is. If I have the name of the cemetery, I can then proceed with requests through the genealogy library and also hire someone to photograph the stones that are not readable in the photographs.
The headstones are for the Wagner family, who lived in the Roaring Creek/Locust Twp./Slabtown area.
The cemetery appears to be in a very rural area, possibly on a township road. There is a small white building in the background that may or may not be a country church. There appear to be many old stones in this cemetery. These pictures were taken in 1961 and things could have changed considerably since then.
Buried here are:
Benjamin Wagner - 23 Aug 1808 - 26 Aug 1893
Elizabeth, 1st w/o Benjamin - 28 Feb 1811 - 14 Apr 1838
Johan Wagner, f/o Benjamin - no dates
Charles Wagner, s/o Benjamin - 28 Jan 1846 - 21 Jan 1926
Emma Wagner w/o Charles 27 Oct 1848 - 14 Sept 1910 (same stone as Charles)
I am doing this research as a RAOGK, and my information is scant.
Thank you for any help you might be able to provide!
