Small Family Plots and Cemeteries
(Duncan/Webb/Yarger;Lonesome Grave;Morey;Rock Hill)
Benezette Township
Elk County PA


There are other smaller family plots and cemeteries with many areas of Elk County and similar across the pioneer early days across the country. As they are identifed I will list them here. If you have any other information about these or others please let me know so we can share with others on the site.

Duncan (Webb/ Yarger) Cemetery
Benezette Township
Elk County PA



Duncan Cemetery, Benezette Township, Elk Co., PA was contributed by Jim Burke Janury 2009. As with some of the older cemeteries, the Duncan Cemetery also goes by the name of Webb/Yarger Cemetery (per the Caskey info)- it's all probably one of perspective and who is buried there. I've modified this listing based off other information available including personal knowledge,and most recently based on permission thanks to Sally and Iris Caskey from their Cemeteries and Burial Plots of Elk County Pennsylvania.

The Duncan Cemetery is located on Huston Hill along a private road approximately one mile were the road intersects the Barr Hollow Road near the top of the mountain, on the left side as you proceed up the hill from the Hick Run Road. (Located off Barr Hollow Road, along road to the former Barr farm per Sarah and Iris Caskey documents.)


Robert Duncan and his camp partners so loved this country that they made a pack that when they died they would have their ashes spread here as their final resting place. The inscription read:

"Here lay the ashes of men brought together in final rest by a common bond A zest for living and a love for these mountains God Bless."

All of the above were World War II veterans except for Fred Yarger, Jr. who was killed on a dirt bike while visiting here in 1979.

Lonesome Grave
Benezette Township
Elk County PA



Thanks to Sally and Iris Caskey to use their cemetery information from their Cemeteries and Burial Plots of Elk County Pennsylvania.

Lonesome Grave, located on Rock Hill. A logging/woods road leads off Rock Hill Road to the right of a mountain stream. A mobile-trailer camp is located just beyond on Rock Hill road. If youi come to Camp Whatchamacallit you have come too far on the road. Follow the logging road a short distance until another road or trail leads off to your left, follow this trail on as it curves to the right and up the mountain to nearly the very top. At this point you will see a plot to your right with a steel cable enclosure, approx. thirty feet square and a metal plaque erected to Granny Leathers. You should be able to reach this site which is on private land at a leisurely pace in about 20 minutes from Rock Hill Road.
