SWARTZ AND NISSLEY CEMETERY
 

The Swartz/Nissley cemetery  is located 1 mile south on Farm Lane off Longview Drive (formaly Swartz Farm).  It contains the tombstones of the earliest members of the Swartz family in this country, including that of Christian Schwartz, who was born on November 16, 1745.
 

According to the "History of the Counties of Dauphin and Lebanon," Solomon L. Swartz, of Middletown, traces his descent from Christian Schwartz (I), who was born in Germany, and on emigrating to the United States settled first in Lancaster (now Berks) County. He moved thence to Dauphin County, where he became the owner of two hundred and sixty acres of preservation.
