On this page I am looking into Balches who settled and lived in the Deerfield, Pennsylvania area. I am descended from some of these Balches so this is particularly interesting for me. Below I have listed Balches burried in a couple of different Deerfield area cemeteries. "Riverside - Deerfield" refers to the Riverside Cemetery while "Smith - Deerfield" refers to the Smith Burying Ground that is in that same area. Below that are census results that show Balches who lived in the Deerfield, PA area as of 1870.

*Source lists this name as "A.CL. Balck" but I suspect it's actually supposed to be Archibald Balch - Archibald's date of death coincides with the death date on this stone.
