Contributed by Gary L Caldwell, May 21, 2010, last edited Jun 07, 2010 [caldwell.gary@gmail.com]. Total records = 225.

Directions: Take the West Alexander exit from Interstate Route 70 (about 15 miles west of Washington, PA), follow Old Brick Road for 0.1 mi and continue on Maple Ave for 0.1, turn left on Main Street for 0.1 mi, turn right on North Liberty Street for 0.4 miles, cemetery is on right.

The West Alexander cemetery is called the “New Cemetery” by the local inhabitants. Some maps call it the West Allegheny Cemetery.

The company by which this cemetery was laid out was organized early in 1871, and incorporated August 31st in that year. A tract of ten acres was purchased from W. A. Hagerty at three hundred dollars per acre. This tract was handsomely laid out as a cemetery in the modern style, with walks and carriage-ways, and tastefully decorated by the planting of evergreen and other trees. The cemetery occupies a beautiful site on rising ground, from the higher parts of which the views are fine and extensive.

This data was collected by the DAR and found in the genealogy section of the Washington PA library. The data is from 1937 so the burial records may not be complete.
