Friends of Midland Master Names List

Click the links below for lists of names collected by the  Friends of Midland organization.  Most of the names on the lists, alphabetized by surname, represent persons either interred at Midland Cemetery, or African Americans who died in the Borough of Steelton in the late 1800's and early 1900's.

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:
