Stonybank Methodist Church Cemetery

Stoney Bank Road
1/2 Mile South of (Route 1) Glen Mills, PA
Church Organized 1810. Rebuild 1870

Images are in order of how the stones are currently placed in the cemetery.  They are listed from the Heard Property side, left to right by row, towards the parking lot.  Several resources were used to try and match the difficult to read stones with known burials in this cemetery.  Please help us to identify these stones if you can.  When the church was rebuilt, it was apparently built over existing graves and only the stones were relocated, so the location of the stones is not necessarily the exact location of the burial.

Stony Bank Methodist Church
History of Delaware County Pennsylvania
By Henry Graham Ashmead, 1884
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This Church organization was originally included in the township of Aston, until the act of July 30, 1842, made the change in the township lines which annexed Stony Bank meeting-house to Thornbury.  The church was organized in 1810, by Israel Pyle, Benjamin Baldwin, and others, the first meetings being held in the Stony Bank school-house until the meeting-house was erected, in 1812.  The stone church then built was used until 1870, when the new edifice was erected, the cornerstone being laid on July 28th of that year.  The building was completed the following spring, and dedicated May 27, 1871.  The membership of Stony Bank Church is about twenty-five persons at the present time.  Since 1856 the pastors have been Revs. H. G. King, J. Z. Cooper, H. H. Bodine, H. Houston,  H. B. Mauger, W. C. Johnson, J. W. Watson, E. W. Townsend, J. Magee, W. B. Chalfant, R. H. Sadler, C. M. Boswell, C. E. Adamson, N. W. Clark, and the present pastor, W. C. Graeff.
