The Milestown Baptist Church Cemetery used to be located at Oak Lane and Chelten Avenue. Unfortunately it was destroyed for the construction of a gas station circa 1970. By 1985 when I got there to look at it the gas station was closed and abandoned.

The "bodies", including some several dozen of my ancestors, were relocated under court order to a common grave in a cemetery in Cheltenham. I have i's name somewhere. A law firm in Philadelphia was also appointed by the court to maintain the records.

Several of my ancestors were Megargees (Megargals) and there were a good number buried in the graveyard.

I have an entire list of burials in one of my files and will look for it.
