Latitude: 40.29214939594482, Longitude: -76.81636333465576

Notes:
Shoops Cemetery is located just off of Locust Lane in Colonial Park, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, USA.
Actually there are 6 Shoops-Shope-Shope's cemeteries in Dauphin County.
There is one in West Hanover Township, one in Derry Township, and one in Lower Swatara Township.
There are 3 in Lower Paxton Township. Karl J. Fox will try to explain this:
Starting with the Lower Paxton Cemetery:
The original Shoops Luthern Church Cem. seems to be the major problem.
This cemetery is still in use and is now referred to as the Shoops Cemetery, under an Association. The church was located along Rt. 22. The church was torn down and almost 400 graves were moved. The church split into two denominations, and each has its own church now in Lower Paxton Township.
The next is Shoops Garden of Rest. This cemetery is an extension of the previous mentioned cemetery on Locust Lane, close to the old Central Dauphin High School.
The third Shoops Cemetery in Lower Paxton Township is a small private farm cemetery.
The fourth Shope's Church Cem in Derry Township is gone,
but some stones survive.
The fifth: The Shope Bethel Church of God Cemetery is in West Hanover Township. It was moved to the Shope Luthern Church Cem in Lower Paxton Township some time ago. Only a plaque shows the location. Located off of Rt. 22.
The sixth: The Shope's Mennonite Church Cem is located in Lower Swatara Townshiop,outside of Highspire, Pennsylvania, USA on Lumber Street. This was also named the Mumma Cemetery.
