WERKHEISER CEMETERY RECORDS - FORKS TOWNSHIP

FORKS CHURCH OLD GRAVEYARD
Forks or Salem Church-Yard and apparently also at one time known as "Werkheiser Cemetery"and also Stocker cemetery is situated at Churchville, in the northeran part of Forks township, about 5 miles N. W. of Easton, Pa. The yard was laid-out in the year 1760, but whether the Church was erected at the same time, is not definitely known. Parts of the present structure date from 1812. I copied this as the article was written. Its hand-written so it was to the best of my knowledge. There are also Forks records(with notes) at Forks THESE ARE NOT IN ALPHABETICAL ORDER!
