Midland Cemetery
Name Index to Map of Lot Holders


Midland Cemetery was recently rescued from neglect by local historian Barbara B. Barksdale, who began the Friends of Midland organization.  That organization is the best source of information on the cemetery.  They can be contacted at the following address:
Friends of Midland, P. O. Box 7442, Steelton, Pennsylvania 17113-0442.  View their home page

he map of lot holders in Midland Cemetery is undated, but shows owners for most of the lots, and probably dates from the middle decades of the twentieth century.  It has been scanned in sections, and the sections reassembled in a grid on a separate page.  All of the names on the map are transcribed and alphabetized below, with a link to the section of the map on which they appear. The listings below are in the following format: Alphabetized name of lot holder, lot number(s), text appearing on the map for that lot (note that some lots hold two or more names), and a link to the map section.
