Mount Zion: Fox St., across from Township Administration bldg., 100 graves

UPDATE: On September 29, 1870, Mt. Zion Hebrew Burial Association of Franklin purchased a one-acre, 56 perches piece of property in Sugarcreek Township near Franklin for the cemetery. This group of twelve men chartered the site in the county somewhat later --November 19, 1895. The charter states that the purpose was to provide a burial location for persons of the Jewish faith. This cemetery, originally catalogued by Gerry Swetsky of Milton, Florida, was later researched in more depth by members of the Venango County Historical Society. There was a burial of ashes as recently as 2000-2001. Source: Gerry Swetsky, who is interested in Titusville, PA. This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
