To reach this cemetery, just north of Richburg, turn right or east onto Hwy 223 (Wylies Mill Rd) continuing for about 2 miles gradually turning northward. Turn right onto Mt Vernon road and drive for approx 3/4 mile until some large power lines cross the road. Look to the right, you will see a 4 wheeler dirt trail going up the hill (underneath the power lines). Follow the trail to the top of the hill and you will see the cemetery. It is overgrown somewhat with a chain link fence around it. The cemetery cannot be seen from the road.

This is an old church cemetery, but Chester County is in care of it recently and there is to be a driveway made to the cemetery very soon. Work is being done to document all the "forgotten" cemeteries in Chester Co and publish the work for Chester County library.

This cemetery is in fairly good shape, but somewhat overgrown with weeds and vines. All of the visible graves are documented, however there are many that are marked, yet have no writing or names. They are just stones. There are many Revolutionary soldiers and Civil War soldiers buried here.

I walked and read this cemetery using a digital camera on Mar 03, 2007. This list contains all the visible burials, however there are many graves that are marked only with a stone, no writing.

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.
