From Washington PA (intersection of West Chestnut St and Interstate 70) head west on US-40 W/W Chestnut St toward National Pike for 2.7 mi, turn left or south onto E Buffalo Church Road for about one mile. The cemetery is on the right across from the church.

According to Boyd Crumrine's "History of Washington County, Pennsylvania with Biographical Sketches of Many of Its Pioneers and Prominent Men" (Philadelphia: L. H. Leverts & Co., 1882), the time when the cemetery was formally organized cannot now be definitely fixed. The earliest mention of East Buffalo ecclesiastically is in the minutes of the Synod of Pittsburgh, where the Presbytery of Ohio reports Rev. Thomas Hoge as stated supply at Upper Ten-Mile and East Buffalo, in the year 1818, one year previous to the formation of the Presbytery of Washington.

The cemetery, however, must have had some kind of existence prior to that time, and contemporary with a German Lutheran congregation that existed in the same place until perhaps near 1840, when by removals and deaths it ceased to exist. It was doubtless to accommodate both these elements that existed in the neighborhood that induced Hardman Horn, Laurence Streker, and Michael Ely to make a deed to the "German Societies" of this neighborhood being of the Presbyterian Church and persuasion, and also, that for and in consideration of the sum of five shillings," conveying certain boundaries containing three acres (about one acre from each) "for the use of school-house, meeting-house, and burying-ground forever." The deed was made March 5, A.D. 1802.

This data was collected by the DAR and found in the genealogy section of the Washington PA library. The data is from 1936 so the burial records are not complete.

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.
