ST. PETER’S CEMETERY, LITHGOW

CLASSIFICATION: Churchyard.
LOCATION: North of the village of Lithgow, just west of the main highway.
CONDITION: Well cared for.
INSCRIPTIONS: 221 in number. Copied August 27, 1914, by J. W. Poucher, M. D., Mrs. H. N. Bain, and Mr. Richard F. Maher.
REMARKS: St. Peter’s Cemetery, controlled by the vestry of St. Peter’s Church, Lithgow. St. Peter’s parish was founded in 1801 by Philander Chase, then rector of Christ Church, Poughkeepsie, and later the famous missionary Bishop of Ohio. In 1806 David Johnston of Lithgow gave the land for a church building, his gift comprising the present cemetery lot. Not until 1834, however, was the building erected and it burned down in 1880. In rebuilding in the same year the parish selected the present site in the village of Lithgow. Although a church stood for so short a time on the land by David Johnston, the lot had been continuously used for burial purposes. It is now more then a parochial burying ground, the whole community making use of it.
