There is no sign for the Whitestone cemetery which is very small and set back from the road, just outside the wee village of Garland.

Driving directions from the Hickory Street bridge in Warren (perhaps 18 miles; about 30 minutes): go west on Pennsylvania Ave W/US-6 (business route) along the Allegheny River. US Hwy 62 will join with US 6 before you leave Warren and the highways will become a free-access 4-lane. Drive through Starbrick and continue west on US 6 through Youngsville and on to Pittsfield. There the road will branch. Bear left onto Rt. 27 which will take you to the village of Garland. Watch for Kane Road in the center of town on the left. Follow Kane Road east out of town and into beautiful farm country. The road will make a 90 degree bend to the south just as you reach a cluster of farm buildings. Not far beyond the buildings, on the right of Kane Road will be a white fence marking the beautifully kept cemetery.
Park along the berm of the road and walk on up into the grounds and be rewarded with seeing some of the oldest gravestones in the state.
Take a stroll...
Just inside the fence are a row of Revolutionary War markers.
This photograph taken looking out of the cemetery east toward Kane Road.

The corn field on the right marks the end of the cemetery. Where the white fence ends (above) does afford another route into the grounds;
however there's a bit of a steep climb up the bank.
