13 Stray Tombstones in Pennsylvania - Where Do They Belong?

State police at Schuylkill Haven are investigating the discovery of 13 tombstones found in East Norwegian Township, Schuylkill Co. Pennsylvania.

Of the 13, only six have been transcribed so far, which state:

Robert D. Phelger 1875-1951
Frank 1866-1910
Loretta A. Buries 1900-1945
Harry J. Johnson 1887-1924
Mary A. Rote 1888-1933 
William E. Gramley 1886-1948

Police have not yet transcribed the other 8 tombstones but are anxious to learn where the tombstones came from.

Anyone with information as to what cemetery the tombstones are from or who may have been in possession of the stones is asked to contact state police at Schuylkill Haven at 570-593-2000.
