Pictures taken by Pamela Smith, fall of 2010. This cemetery is on private property and you must have permission to enter. It looks like it is on the Nature Center Property but not real sure. I was disappointed to find that all the stones were gone. I guess the neighborhood children over the years have moved them, etc. but I was excited to see a cemetery so close to my residence and in doing my regular research was able to learn a little history about my area. The cemetery sits way up on a hill not close to Barg Salt Run Road but the old Grosebeck Road that ran off of Barg Salt Run Road. Old records state 100 feet from Grosebeck Road. You walk on flat ground from Shepherd Road into the woods heading toward the Nature Center. The cemetery sits up on a knoll with a creek surrounding right side of the cemetery. There was a very large dead tree at the entrance of the cemetery. If you walk along the creek then come up on the ridge to the left you will find it sooner or later. I could hear trail walkers when I was there so it must be straight across the creek from a trail at the Nature Center. The trip to the cemetery is not necessary because there really isn’t anything left to see but one small piece of a stone with an age inscription.
