George Balsbaugh, the original owner of the land near the southeast corner of Cocoa and Governor Roads, donated land for a church and cemetery. Consequently, the church was named the Balsbaugh Church, but, according to Jay Curry, a local resident and descendent of one of the original subscribers, the cemetery was never officially connected to the Balsbaugh Church and was never officially called the Balsbaugh Cemetery.


The original governing body, called the United Christian Cemetery Association, was chartered on May 16, 1904, with the following listed as subscribers: Rev. John B. Curry of Derry Township Dauphin County, his son, Rev. Irwin K. Curry of Derry Township Dauphin County, Franklin Balsbaugh of Derry Township Dauphin County, George H. Balsbaugh of Conewago Township Dauphin County, and M. D. Landis of Palmyra, Lebanon County. The original subscribers became the first Board of Directors. After a vote of the lot holders in June of 1965, the name of the cemetery was officially changed from the United Christian Cemetery to the Broadview Cemetery.


At present, in 2005, an elected, five member Board of Directors is responsible for all decisions concerning the administration of the cemetery. The Directors are elected, as needed, at the annual June meeting of lot holders. Perpetual care is provided through a fund administered by the treasurer.

Volunteers for the Derry Township Historical Society recorded this cemetery in 1996. Photographs of most of the stones are on file at the Derry Township Historical Society. 

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.
