St John Lutheran Reformed Church (River Church)
This book (actually a binder) is at the Montgomery House Library, McEwensville Pa
It lists David and Esther Aunkst - but no mention of Daniel... if he's buried here, no one knows it. :-(
I also checked Northumberland Co. Burials Volume VI, which has the listings for this cemetery as well, done by someone else.. again, no Daniel.
More from this book -
(no relation, just interesting.. and David Aunkst IS buried here)

Here is a photo of the page from Burials Of Northumberland Co, Volume VI
Note it lists this cemetery as "St John's Union"
I know it's referring to the same cemetery above, because they have the same listings, same tombstones, including David and Esther listed on both.
So is there ANOTHER Lutheran Cemetery, and that is why I have not found Daniel 1786-1866? Still looking!
(My notes for Daniel say - "Interred in St John's Lutheran & Reformed Church Cemetery, sometimes called the river and Delaware Run church, which with the graveyard ajoins his farm in Delaware twp" - that's a lot of names for one church, especially if you now add Union to that list!)
All of these records can be found in the reference section of the Montgomery House Library, McEwensville Pa.
