Tinker Ridge Cemetery - Wharton Twp.

Compiled by Bonnie Ward, Fern Park, FL

My husband and I extracted Tinker Ridge 20 Jul 1986. This is what we found at that time. The cemetery is on private property. It is approx. 60' x 60', the condition was fair, fenced on three sides, a tree line on the fourth. This cemetery is also known as Wable Cemetery. It is accessible by car with a little walking. The eight tombstones that are standing are traditional but there are about two dozen locust wood plank markers, two of which were legible, all in various stages of rot. Many, many sunken, unmarked graves. The cemetery appeared to be full.

Directions: From Ohiopyle (Stewart Township) go south on Rt. 381. Go to the intersection of Dinner Bell Road. Go left on Dinner Bell Road for 3.5 miles. This is the corner of the Bryner/Wable property. Along the edge of the property is a line of trees, follow them about 80 yards to the cemetery on the right. We received permission from Melvin Bryner to go on his land and extract the cemetery.
