Brower Cemetery
Parker Ford, Chester County, Pennsylvania

Old Schuylkill Road and Anderson Road, Parker Ford PA

Lat: 40° 12' 20"N, Lon: 75° 35' 49"W

To reach this cemetery from Parker Ford, drive northwest on Old Schuylkill Road for just under a mile. The cemetery will be on your left just after the intersection with Anderson Road on your right.

Brower Cemetery is a very old burial site situated to the left of the no longer used Meeting house as you face it. This cemetery is abutting the Oak Grove Cemetery to the southwest. The sign for that cemetery causes people to think they are the same cemetery. The Oak Grove Cemetery Association does maintain this cemetery but they have no records for it. This cemetery has many unmarked field stones. It is thought some of the unmarked graves and those illegible stones might date back to the late 1700s to the Valley Forge and the Revolutionary War days, but there is no record to varify this.
