Bidwell Cemetery - Stewart Twp.

Transcribed from headstones by Ken O'Neal

To get there go to Normalville, Pa. and take RT. 381 towards Ohiopyle. One and 4/10 miles past Falling Water you will see the Smokehouse Restaurant on the left, turn left. Go 3 miles to Bidwell Rd., turn right and stay on this road until you cross the creek 3 times. After the third time bear to the right and go up hill. At top on left is an old road, go down it about 200 yards to the cemetery. There are many unmarked fieldstones and many marked but cannot be read. The cemetery is grown up with brush. Not all stones were read as it was raining hard and dry weather is needed for a better check. The road down over the river hill is dirt and semi-improved. You must drive across a creek THREE times. A car with high clearance can get you close but a truck is better, preferably 4X4.
