In Reply to: FERER FAMILY by LeRoy Stout of 942

In the Mifflin County cemetery records, assembled in 1976, there is only one listing for the surname FERER.

The marker is located in the FIRST METHODIST CEMETERY, Row "N". The cemetery is on Juniata & 4th Streets in the Borough of Lewistown, Mifflin County, Pa.

According to the cemetery records book it is a 4-sided monument, recorded as follows:

South face:
Martha Hays 5/1797-5/1883
Eddie F. Bell 8/1878-3/1882

West face:
Mary Ferer 4/1803-3/1868 MOTHER

North face:
J B A Ferer 9/1839-10/1864

East face:
Henry Ferer 4/1790-1/1872 FATHER


Under the variant spelling of the surname, FERRER, there is one listing at St. Marks Episcopal cemetery, also in the Lewistown Borough.

2 stones as follows:

Redolphus Ferrer 1823-1896
Mary E. Ferrer 1829-190 ? (wife of R. Ferrer, daughter of Daniel Switzer)


I looked through several books in my library of Mifflin County books. There are no FERER wills noted as being registered at the courthouse (although there may be Letters of Administration which are not included in my book). There are several notations of FERER in the "Former Residents Of Mifflin County" book, but I don't find a DANIEL listed.

If you contact the Mifflin County Historical Society they will do a search of 31 Mifflin County sources for a $25 fee.

Their email is :

Good luck,
