There is little available historically about Chapel Cemetery. According to the DAR, the cemetery was in deplorable condition with about 30 sandstone tombstones standing with the lettering all gone. According to their information, each cemetery and associated church in both West and East Finley Townships seemed to start from one of the old sturdy forts they had for their protection.
This data was collected by the DAR and found in the genealogy section of the Washington PA library. The data is from 1939 but the burial records are believed to be complete.
