Mt Hermon Cemetery
Williams Road

Inventory Project 4/24/99
Alphabetic Inventory Listing


On April 24th, 1999, a dedicated group of genealogists gathered in Cumberland to inventory Mt. Hermon Cemetery. The troop leader, a long time member of the Genealogical Society's Cemetery Committee, was Ed Twigg. His counterpart in assembling this group, known to all on the Allegany County mailing list, was Connie Beachy. Together, they gathered the group pictured below. Conspiculously missing from all but one of these photos is Ken Burdette, the man behind the lens, who is responsible for capturing this event for all of us unfortunate enough to have missed this chance to pitch in.
