OLDEST CEMETERY IN THE STATE

     Numidia, Columbia County, has an old cemetery, which will become an object of interest when the soldiers’ graves are decorated on May 30. The cemetery is one of the oldest in that section of state. Bodies were interred there way back in 1770. Numerous slabs which were placed there 118 years ago still stand, and the inscriptions are very interesting. A number of Shamokinites are buried in this cemetery.
