ST JACOB'S (STONE) (LUTHERAN) UNION CHURCH (Several views)
St Jacob's (Stone) Lutheran Church (now called St Jacob's (Stone) Union Church) carries a lot of history. During a recent visit, we found a cornerstone dated 1889 (See the picture below). However, the congregation has existed much longer. Our ancestor, Jacob S. Peterman and several of his siblings were reportedly baptized in the church. His baptismal record indicates he was baptised there on May 17, 1789. His aunt Julianna who was born January 28, 1775 died May 6, 1863 is apparently buried there. She was married to Johannes Shue 5/17/1767-4/18/1836. I did not find their stone but did observe that there are several members of the Shue family buried there. This church with its majestic belltower sits North of Glenville and South of Brodbecks in York County, PA. It is located on Stone Church Road between highway 216 and 516.
