…bringing our past into the future

Buch Cemetery, West Earl Township, Lancaster County


Feb 27, 2014

Buch Cemetery
Lancaster County PA


The Buch Cemetery was approximately 20 by 20 feet, and was located along the northwest corner of the Buch Farm, in West Earl Twp, just south of the Borough of Akron, and along Pool Road. Twenty years ago, while this cemetery was showing signs of neglect, it was still intact. Now, I am sad to say, it is no longer, as the cemetery markers were moved to Metzler’s Church Cemetery, about two miles from their original resting place. The names of the people resting in this place are;

Ann Eliza, a daughter of John R. and Lydia Buch, who died March 24, 1856 at the age of 2 days. Her Parents, John R. and Lydia Buch are buried at Zion Cemetery, Eleventh Street in Akron. John R. Buch was the Son of George Buch. 

Daniel Buch who was born November 11, 1819, and died December 17, 1822 at the age of 3 years, 2 month and 6 days

Elizabeth daughter of Emanual and Maria Buch died September 17, 1844 at the age of 3 years, 10 months and 17 days.

Susanne Buch born November 15, 1830, death date not shown at the time.
