Honoring an Ancestor
Honoring an Ancestor at Mt Zion Cemetery, Weedville

Cemetery listings are a great resource for searching our ancestors. I am very much indebted to Jim Burke and the Mt Zion Historical Society for all their work in helping me to compile these lists. Along with Jim Burke, I have recently visited many of the cemeteries in the Bennett's Valley area specifically Jay and Benezette Township. It actually is a very spiritual time visiting the final resting places of our ancestors and recording their tombstones.

I am also very thankful to Sarah and Iris Caskey for their permission to share their published information on the cemeteries in Elk County (Cemeteries and Burial Plots of Elk County Pennsylvania). Additionally I've reviewed some of the listings against other information available and added or changed to make these as complete as possible- which none ever will be. The spirit here is to share these listings for all to see- There is no copyrighting of these listings intended- but the contributors wish that these are not copied for any commercial purpose. If you have any that you can contribute that would be great. Let me know.
SPECIAL NOTES ON CEMETERIES: If you have any other comments to add please let me know. Having recently gone to many of these cemeteries I've found and learned from other contributiors that many of these smaller cemeteries are primarily very old family plots such as:

Morey Family Plot--- "L M 1845" is found along with two others, unmarked. This marker may be the marker for Leonard Morey, Lewis Family Plot, Rothrock Family Plot, and Kincaid Family Plot and are in disrepair. The Potter Goff Family Plot on Gray Hill Road only has two readable grave stones. There must be at least twenty gravestones of native rock which have no information except to identify a grave site. I'm sure this story can be repeated by all those who have visited the cemeteries of our ancestors.

Brandy Camp did have a cemetery that included several Rev. War veterans, but supposedly no longer exists. A number of Fox and Horton Townships oldest residents are missing and they may be buried in that cemetery (Sherry J).

Gibson Township now in Cameron County was once a part of Benezette Township. You may want to search these cemeteries also. Gibson Township Cemeteries

There are also some cemeteries of interest from Clearfield County which I will post here. See below for those cemetery listings. See the following links for other interesting information and projects:
