    A History of the Upper Germantown Burying-Ground (page 557-558)(Pennsylvania Vital Records from the
    Pennsylvania Genealogical Magazine &the Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography):
    Germantown Avenue(Main Street) above Washington Avenue by Peter D. Keyser, M. D. "At thetime of
    the settlement of Germantown (1683-1695) there was really but tworeligious bodies or sects among the
    people - the Mennonites and theQuakers. Their meetings for worship were for some years held in
    thehouses of their members, and from what we can glean from the history ofthe place, the two sects are
    supposed to have at times worshiped togetherin the same house, until their separate meeting houses
    were built. Duringthis time it is not known that any special plot of ground was laid outfor the burial of the
    dead; and no doubt the bodies of those who diedwere deposited in their own grounds. On the erection of
    the Quaker ofFriends meeting house in 1705, and the church of the Mennonites in 1706each building had
    its graveyard attached for the burial of its members.After the year 1700 people of other denominations,
    such as Dunkers,Lutherans, etc., began to settle in the town and vicinity, and as therewas no place in the
    upper part of Germantown as an open ground for anyone of different religious views who wished to be
    buried in a regulargraveyard, Paul Wulff, in 1724, granted one-half acre of ground situatedat the upper
    end of Germantown, on the Main Street, above the road toAbington or Keysers Lane, to the corporation
    for a burying-ground. Havingreceived the lot, it was deemed necessary to put a stone wall along thefront
    of it. To meet the expenses of the same a subscription was takenamou the inhabitants in money,labor,
    sotne, ets. It was conditioned thatall subscribers were to receive the right to bury in the graveyard at
    anytime. It was called the "Upper Germantown Burying Ground". The frontwall on the main road was
    begun in May 1724 by Dirck Johnson and JohnFrederick Ax and was finished with the assistance in labor,
    money orstone by Anthony Klincken, HENRY SELLEN."
