This old family cemetery is located on a private road on the Brandt farm off Witmer Road. The cemetery is in Conewago Township, Dauphin County, just south of Derry Township. The current owner, Jay Brandt, reports that he has documentation recording the ownership from 1795 to the present:

1795 until 1832, the Stevic family,

1832 until 1838, the Coleman family,

1832 until 1842, the Bachman family,

1842 until 1861, the Brinser family,

1861 until 1874, the Jacob Brandt, and

1874 until the present, the Joseph G. Brandt family and descendants.

The years may be off a little but it is extremely rare that such a chain of ownership is passed on through the various owners.



We would be happy to conduct a cemetery search or do more extensive research for you.  The cemetery search would include all Derry Township cemeteries plus others that are closely associated with our township.  Most of the names in our cemetery database are not available elsewhere on the internet.  The cost is $5 per surname and you may supply up to three alternate spellings (total of four).  If you find your ancestors in the list below and require additional information, please contact us.

For more thorough research, please request a copy of our research policy.  In addition, our obituary list and our name index of "lost and found" ancestors may be of interest to you.  Please check our main library page for these and other links, as we continue to update our information on line.

Names of those who were buried - Available soon.
