The WPA Project's Cemetery Readings were done in the mid 1930's. In comparing the Glessner Musser Cemetery list (created after photographing the tombstones), with the WPA Cemetery lists, 8 of the names were on the WPA Musser Cemetery list and 1 name (Joseph Ross) was on the WPA Roth Cemetery list. All three cemeteries appear to be in the same general area in Stonycreek Township.
