    Looking for the grave stones of the Haushalter family, later known as Householder. I know some are buried there and some were married and baptized in this church in the mid 1700′s. Are there and where can I obtain all records? I would like to Thank who ever is in charge of keeping up this old cemetery, it looks well taken care of and I think that is wonderful. Please respond to my email address above….

    Thank you; do you have a church address and does this church building still exist today? What about the cemetery? I wonder if the above Sus/Suess families are buried here. Must have went to Bindnagle Church later to help start.

    thanks,
    Annette

    • I don’t have an address. The church and it’s cemetery are located in Brickerville on route 322 (E 28th Division Highway) at Hershey Road. Google has Brickerville United Lutheran church at 340 East 28th Division Highway, Lititz, Pennsylvania. Based on the placement of their dots, it may be the same church.

    Is this Emanuel Lutheran Church different than the Bindnagle’s Lutheran Church near Palmyra in Lebanon Co? Interested in any Sus/Suess/Seess/Sees (SEASE today) records.

    Thank you.

      There are many more records. I’d recommend you get the book Records of Pastoral Acts at Emanuel Lutheran Church, known in the eighteenth century as the Warwick congregation, near Brickerville, Elizabeth Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, 1743-1799.
