Peterson Cemetery near Davey

Has anyone heard of a "Peterson Cemetery" near the town of Davey in Lancaster County? I am helping a friend research her family. She has a great aunt, Stella Pauline Cawthon, who died in 1917 at about age 3. She is listed in other family trees as buried in the Peterson Cemetery near Davey.

I have searched thru on line records for nearby cemeteries and do not find her listed any where. There may not be a grave stone for her.

I also came across a history of the city of Davey. On the same web site is a picture of the Peterson's Home. I wonder if this is a prominet family in Davey and maybe had a family cemetery where Stella Cawthon might be buried. No mention of the Peterson family is made in the article. Or maybe the name of the Cemetery has changed over time.

Two other children in the family are listed as born in Waverly -- maybe the cemetery is closer to that city.

Any ideas???

Thanks. Kathy Vacek
