Ball Cemetery - Dunbar Twp.

Transcribed from tombstones by Ken O'Neal

Directions: Take Crawford Ave. up West Side Hill out of Connellsville. Stay on it for about 4 or 5 miles until you come to a Y, then bear left. About 1/4 mile turn left onto Race Path Road. This cemetery is about 1/2 mile down Race Path Road sitting in the middle of a field on the right. It is overgrown with large trees and brush. Groundhogs have dug under the stones and caused most to fall over. I have been told that, over the years, some stones have been buried by the land owners, as they cleared more land.
