Barr Cemetery
Abraham Barr Stone BARR CEMETERY

Located in Eden township, Lancaster County, Pa on a private farm. The owners were kind enough to let two volunteers visit the cemetery and write down the inscriptions of the stones found there. These were also photographed when we visited 4/ 25/ 1998.

The home which presently stands on the first farm has a block dated 1853 Built by Abraham and Christine Barr The stones in this cemetery range from uninscribed field stones, some very worn stones which were hard to read and some which look very good to this day.

We located an older transcription of this cemetery Items appearing like /this/ are notes from theses transcriptions and at the bottom of the list a list will be made of all stones noted on their list not found on our visit.
