From west Waynesburg, turn right off of Route 21 West onto Route 18 North (Brown's Creek Road). Follow Route 18 North 4.3 miles, passing through the village of Sycamore. Turn left on to Ingram Hill Road, cross the railroad tracks and continue for 1 mile. On your left there will be a dirt lane that goes up into a field. There will be a cable across the lane. Park here, cross the cable and walk to the top of the field. The cemetery is located to the left in the middle of the field and is surrounded by old fence posts.
This cemetery is in poor condition and is not maintained. Trees are growing up around it and the brush will be thick during warmer months. I found seven fieldstone markers as well as one partially legible small stone. The cemetery is located on private property owned by the Hanko family, who live in the next house up Ingram Hill Road on the right. Please obtain permission from the property owner before going to the cemetery.
I walked the cemetery on Jan 03, 2009. This transcription is complete and includes all stones within the cemetery. I also have digital photos of all stones as well as many views of the cemetery itself and would be willing to share them with anyone interested.
