Thompson Farm Cemetery - South Union Twp.

Transcribed from tombstones by Ken O'Neal

Directions: From the intersection of Rt 119 bypass and Rt 21 (McClellandtown Rd) in Uniontown, go west on Rt 21 for 1.1 miles to the Springdale Golf Club on the right. Park in the clubhouse parking lot and get directions at the clubhouse. The cemetery is located about 100 feet from the flag on the 15th green, in the woods. In general, you will go straight back from the clubhouse to the 18th tee, bear left and proceed to the green in the distance (15th). This cemetery is in VERY poor shape. I found stones partly buried, broken and some standing against trees. There are several unmarked field stones. Apparently there are more graves in this cemetery, possibly destroyed when developing the golf greens.
