About

Amelia Earhart's paternal aunt, Della Mayer (1857-1908), is buried here. She died in the Rhoads Opera House Fire on Jan. 13, 1908, where she was involved in a play with her sister, Harriet Monroe. I read about this in The Boyertown Bulletin, Vol. 4, Issue 3, March 2015, on p. 1. (The article has a typo, Myer instead of Mayer.)
