In Memory Of
John Deeter (Johannes Ditrich)
and his wife
Catherine nee Springer
died 1828

    Pioneer settlers of this community; settling on this farm at the close of the Revolutionary War in which he served, receiving title from the state by patent dated May 17, 1793, this opening in the mountain is designated on the map of Pennsylvania as Deeter's Gap.
     He was a natural mechanic; erecting his own farm buildings constructing his own sawmill, cut millstones for customers. This stone was cut by him and remained on these premises unused until 1933, when it was erected as a memorial to him and his wife by descendants.

     Situated on the McLuckie Farm in Allegheny Twp., at the edge of the woods east of the Buildings, near an old lime stone quary, and not far from St Lukes Mountain Church, on Highway #31
