New Gravestone Galleries

I’ve added gravestones from two new cemeteries in the Galleries section: Bowman’s Cemetery and Cedar Hill Cemetery in Ephrata Borough, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. This is in addition to the Emanuel Lutheran Church Cemetery gravestones that were already available. Most of these gravestones are from members of the Hacker/Hocker and affiliated families.
