A few weeks ago, I received a telephone call from my friend Peggy Moser. Peggy has led a group of volunteers who are restoring the Horner's Cemetery. The historic cemetery is located off Route 329 behind God's Missionary Church in East Allen Township. Since 2008 they have done extensive research using original documents from the Presbyterian Church archives center in Philadelphia.
