Rogersville Cemetery
Rogersville, Greene County, Pennsylvania

Center Township

Contributed by Brad Jarvis, Apr 14, 2007, last edited Apr 08, 2009 [forza@windstream.net]. Total records = 47.

To reach this cemetery from Waynesburg, Pennsylvania, follow Route 21 West (West Roy Furman Hwy) approximately 7 miles to reach Rogersville. The cemetery is located right in town on a very sharp right hand turn across the road from the Christian Church. There is a sign to identify it.

Although the last burial took place here in 1906, Rogersville Cemetery is well maintained through local volunteer effort. The cemetery is sometimes referred to the "Old" Rogersville Cemetery, since the much larger Rosemont Cemetery is located just east of Rogersville.

I walked and read this cemetery and completed this transcription on Mar 02, 2007. This includes all existing and legible stones and markers. I also have digital photographs of all the stones contained in the cemetery as well as additional military information for the six veterans buried here. I would be glad to share any of this inforamtion and pictures with any interested individual.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
