An Overview of the History of LaGrange Cemetery and Some of its Notable and Not So Notable Residents
Author(s): Samantha Muller
The First Baptist Church of Philadelphia was faced with something all churches confronted – the death of their parishioners. Their burying ground along with their church would evolve and change in both size and location over time. By mid-eighteenth century Lagrange Cemetery was in full use. Who occupied the First Baptist’s Lagrange Cemetery in early Philadelphia? Who were the notable and not so notable residents buried side by side? In exploring the history of over one hundred years of its operation beginning with the first burials on Arch Street to the believed removal of those interred to Mount Moriah, both pastor and parishioners are given their place in the cemeteries’ long history.
