This cemetery was re-read by Joyce Post, October, 2000.

 
Note from Joyce Post:
 
I visited the Old Wolf Run Cemetery at the beginning of October 2000.  It
was completely overrun with brambles, small trees, vines and shrubs.  You
could not see the cemetery at all.  I found someone to clean it up for me
so I could re-read the tombstones.  I would like to thank Reverend William
Kittle and his two daughters, Amy Aston and Michele Stern.  They did a
magnificent job!!  I again, revisited the cemetery on October 30, 2000.
The graves are in four rows with a few tombstones off to the side.  Many
tombstones are missing but with the indentations in the ground or the
raised areas of ground, you could tell there were graves there.  We
actually unearthed a few tombstones that were buried under a few inches
of soil.  I did rubbings of some of the harder to read tombstones to try
to get the information from them.  Most of the tombstones are on their
sides or flat on the ground.  They were too heavy to lift back to their
bases, some we leaned against their bases.  This cemetery needs major
repair work done on the tombstones.

I read these tombstones to the best of my ability, and had two other
people check my readings, so I feel they are fairly accurate.
