MAUST CEMETERY---GRANT TWP, PRESTON COUNTY, WV

To find it, take RT 40 East out of Uniontown. Go to the top of the Summit Mt. and turn right toward Laurel Caverns on Laurel Caverns Rd. Stay on this road until you come to a Y. Take the right road (Skyline Rd.)3 3/10 miles to Wirsing School Rd. Turn right, go 2 miles turn right. This road is dirt and rough but take it easy and a car can travel it. Go to bridge, stop, look to left. You will see a large rock blocking an old road. Walk past the rock about 175 yards to cemetery. This cemetery is in West Virginia, the PA line is less than 100 yards away.

I talked to the gentleman who lives about 1/2 mile from the cemetery, he told me that John Maust joined Co H 3 rd. MD Vol on Mar 31, 1862 in Bruceton Mills as was the custom at the time, and died from sickness 12 days later. He has done some checking of local history.
