Upper Burying Ground, Germantown, PA

Here lie many of the founders of Germantown, including William Dewees, sheriff of Germantown's independent government. Also buried here is Zachariah Poulson, who died in 1844 after having published The American Daily Advertiser, Philadelphia's principal daily newspaper for many years. One of the earliest stones is Cornelius Teisen who arrived in Germantown in 1684 and died in 1716 at age 63
