BRINER SPRINGS CEMETERY

Transcribed by C.F. Briner

History of Briner Springs Cemetery

The cemetery is located on a high hill at Briner Springs, which was at one time a thriving rural community. The community had its own small general store. The earliest marked stone in the cemetery is that of Mary Briner, who died in 1858 and George who died in 1867. George was a son of Peter and Catherine Briner, natives of Pennsylvania, and early settlers east of Paoli. There are a number of small-unmarked stones in the cemetery. The cemetery is approximately one acre in size. This is a list of the occupants:
