SIMONSTOWN

Creamery Road, Dreher Township,

Greentown, Pike County, PA

                    

 

This cemetery was originally a family cemetery of the Simons and Megargel families.  James Simons and his wife Ann Bell purchased 400 acres of land along the Wallenpaupack Creek where they built one of the first homes in the township, of native stone, which still stands today.  There are 37 members of the Simons family buried here.  In 1829, the lands of Allen Megargel were sold to William Ehrgood, the cemetery parcel was not included in the deed, and it has continued to be omitted from all deeds thereafter.  There are veterans from the Spanish American War of 1898 and World War II buried here.  There are two distinct sections of the cemetery, delineating the very early settlers from those who came afterwards.  The early interments are located on the east (left) side of the cemetery where dozens of sunken fieldstones with no engravings mark unknown graves.  This is the only cemetery in Greene and Dreher Townships that does not have perpetual care and the families of the interred are responsible for their own lot upkeep.
