Ziegler's Church Cemetery, Cumberland County

TOMBSTONE INSCRIPTIONS,
Ziegier's Church, Mifflin Township, Cumberland County, Pa.


Ziegler's Church was a log building erected about 1795, and was the first church building in that vicinity for the joint use of the German Reformed and Lutheran congregations. The Lutheran congregation being the stronger absorbed the Reformed, and continued to worship in the old church until 1832. In that year the congregation abandoned the church and erected a new one in Newville, incorporated as Zion's Lutheran Church. The old graveyard, unlike many, is kept in excellent condition from the income of a fund realized from the sale of the old church building.
