Benkelman, Adam and Catherine Family Plot
This marker was engraved on all four sides, with trees planted eight to ten feet out on either side of the marker. The engraving on the granite is very difficult to read, however, the four names engraved upon it are still legible, and are for Adam Benkelman, his wife, Catherine, and two of their daughters-in-law who died shortly after marriage, Lydia Striffler, the wife of Samuel Benkelman and Rosina Wahl, the wife of John Adam Benkelman. This marker was likely erected in 1886, when Rosina died.
Notes: To reach this cemetery, drive east on Hwy 81 for about a mile, cemetery is on the south side of the highway. Elkland Township, Sec 34
