Re: Witherspoon Cemetery (Black)
In Response To: Death Certificate Question ()

Hi Shelia,

I thought this might be a clue. While visiting the Archive I copy the Lancaster Cemetery Listing:

Witherspoon Cemetery (Black)

The Witherspoon Cemetry is in the eastern part of the city of Lancaster. To reach it from North Main street, follow East Meeting Street past the jucture with East Barr Street, to Neal's Grocery Store which is on the left. Turn right at this point on to an unpaved street, follow this for a distance of about a block--cemetry is on the left.

Lafayette B. Belk and Audrey Crawford (Mrs. Adis were instrumental in getting these inscritptions.
