Boliver Cemetery, Fairfield Township

Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania Genealogy Project

 

 

I don't know the proper name of this cemetery, if one exists. It is in the actual town of Bolivar, as opposed to West View Cemetery which is just outside the town. The cemetery is poorly preserved, with many broken and unreadable stones, and several stones lying on their faces. I catalogued the headstones that were readable on 3 January 1998.
