In Greencastle at the intersection of I-81 (Exit 3) and Hwy 16, go east on Hwy 16 for .25 of a mile, until you reach Grindstone Church Road. Turn there and go north/northeast until you reach Reservoir Road. Turn there and go east about .5 miles. The cemetery is sitting on the north side of the road.

A family cemetery that was in use from the 1790's until 1884. The cemetery is taken care of on a regular basis. Some of the headstones have fallen and need repair.
I walked this cemetery on Oct 15, 2003.

    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.
