The older stones in this cemetery have become increasingly difficult to read over the years. In some cases, a number in the dates may be slightly off. When in doubt, I've used "Names and Dates of Burials in the Lower Skippack Mennonite Cemetery Located in Skippack Township, Montgomery County, Pa." by Wilmer Reinford, as 40 years ago the engraving would have been less eroded.
Apparently (or so I've been told, but I've not verified it), information in the Umstat file at the Montgomery County, PA Historical Society states that Hans Peter and wife Barbara are also buried here, but that their names have been obliterated on their tombstones.
Johannes, son of Hans Peter and his wife Mary UNKNOWN (NOT Pennebecker) are also said to have been buried at Lower Skippack as well, but their graves have been obliterated.
Jacob Umstead 1708-1785 and Ann Adams "AU" abt 1718-1796
