P.O. BOX 240
PORT ROYAL, PA 17082-0240

        This cemetery is located at Killinger, Upper Paxton Township, Dauphin County, PA off Route 25 about three miles northeast of Millersburg, PA. Wirth's Evangelical Lutheran Church had its name changed in 1814 to Salem Lutheran Church. There are two cemeteries for the church. This listing of tombstone inscriptions is for the oldest and first cemetery only which was called Wirth's Evangelical Lutheran Church Cemetery 1770-1814. Both church and cemetery was named for the donor of land and buildings for the church, Johann Adam Wirth (1727-1806). Inscriptions were recorded by the author, Jonathan Wert, Wert Family History Association, P.O. Box 240, Port Royal, PA, in 1968.

        There are six rows of tombstones in this cemetery. Most of those tombstones are carved from white marble. Some of the others are filed stone of red, gray and brown in appearance. Three of the tombstones had nothing inscribed on them or the names and dates had worn off over the years. Husbands and wives and families are not always found in the same areas. It appeared that people were first buried in rows according to the years of their death. Also, some tombstones fell over during the years and where installed again at any suitable place. Seventeen tombstones had been tossed off the cemetery lot at the southwest corner. The author could account for 146 burials. The last burial at this cemetery was for Christina H. Miller who died on December 26, 1921.
