Photos at the bottom of this page show the cemetery and the stones as I found them in October 2007. There are two Low Dutch Cemeteries in the area, listed in Adams Co Pa Cemeteries as:


  1. 1. The NORTHERN Low Dutch Cemetery in Straban Twp, also called Osborn’s Cemetery cemetery. (About 7 miles east of Gettysburg (from Route 30) turn north onto Swift Run Rd. and go .7 mile just past the New Chester Rd. The cemetery is about 100 feet back from the right side of Swift Run Rd.) Hunterstown is one and half miles west.  Johannes Taylor says the GPS map coordinates are: 39.871458,-77.118756

  2. 2. The SOUTHERN Low Dutch Cemetery in Mount Pleasant Twp, also called Youngs Cemetery is much smaller (From Route 116, turn south onto Low Dutch Rd, then go about .8 mile. Cemetery is located on left at the southeast corner of Low Dutch Rd and Willow Rd.)


The photos below are of the northern Low Dutch Cemetery in Straban Twp (number two above).
