Mappy Monday- Concord Friends Meeting Burial Ground

My 10th great grandfather- John Mendenhall (1659-1743) is buried in the Concord Friends Meeting Burial Ground in Concordville, Delaware, Pennsylvania. 

Concord Friends Meeting Burial Ground

 Location: at Old Concord and Thornton Roads in Concordville, Delaware, PA- 19331. 

Well, the cemetery doesn't come up on Google Maps, but here is the intersection where it's supposed to be

I found an interesting page on PAGenWeb Archives Cemeteries- it lists some people who are buried in this cemetery- this is just a partial list, but a lot of them are in my family tree:

~Mendenhall, Aaron, Sr.,- my 9th great grand uncle
~Mendenhall, Rose Pierson- my 9th great grand aunt
~Newlin, Elizabeth Paggott- mother-in-law of 10th great grand aunt
~Newlin, Mary Mendenhall- my 10th great grand aunt
~Newlin, Nathaniel- husband of my 10th great grand aunt
~Newlin, Nicholas- since this one doesn't have a birth or death date, I don't know who it is- I have 7 Nicholas Newlin's in my family tree.
~Yarnall, John (1782-1874)- my 4th cousin, 8x removed

I also did a search on Findagrave in this cemetery for the last name Mendenhall: (The ones with the (*) next to it- are in my tree)
