This is a partial list of names of the persons
buried at Midland Cemetery. It was compiled by volunteers and researchers
for the Friends of Midland Cemetery organization, and is a list of persons
known to have been buried at Midland, collected from membership and
questionnaire forms. It is presented here as it was
originally recorded by the Friends of Midland researchers.
This is not a complete list of the burials at Midland. Supplemental lists of names are below, and more will follow as we transcribe documents, interview persons, and discover new information. A master list of all the names in our database, including the names of African Americans who died in Steelton in the late 1800's and early 1900's, but who are not confirmed to be buried in Midland, is available by clicking here.
Names that may or may not be on other lists.
The following list is derived from membership or questionnaire forms gathered over the years.
