Week #4’s headstone is found in Maytown in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. It is one headstone in memory of ten people.
The Inscription tells the story:
KNOWN NOW BUT TO GOD
BURIED BENEATH THIS GROUND ARE THE BONES
OF TEN PERSONS WHOSE UNMARKED GRAVES WERE
UNCOVERED DURING THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE
CHURCH ELEVATOR AND SOCIAL HALL EXPANSION.
THEY HAVE BEEN REBURIED HERE WITH LOVE BY
THEIR HEIRS THE PEOPLE OF ST. JOHN’S IN THE YEAR
OF OUR LORD AND THEIRS 1988 EZEKIEL 37: 1- 14
This was found at Maytown Union Cemetery, adjacent to St. John’s Lutheran Church. This stone impressed me with the caring of yet another congregation in Lancaster County.
