Due to the extensive area of Delmar Township, cemeteries and graveyards are found in various parts. One of the oldest is the graveyard adjoining the old Baptist Church Building at Stony Fork. The new cemetery, a few rods to the south, was incorporated May 4,1886. May be also known as the Butler Cemetery for the Butler family.
