Teagarden Cemetery
Richhill Township, Greene County, Pennsylvania

Lat: 39° 55' 33"N, Lon: 80° 21' 39"W

From Waynesburg follow Route 21 West approximately 6.5 miles through the town of Rogersville and to a blinking yellow light. Bear to the right and stay on Route 21 West for another 7.9 miles to the town of Graysville. Make a right onto Ackley Creek Road and follow for 4.5 miles. Make a right onto Enon Church Road. Almost immediately after turning onto this road, there will be a spot to pull off the road on the right. You will see a trail going up a steep bank into the woods that looks to have been used by ATVs at one time. Follow this trail for approximately 30 yards. The cemetery will be to the right of the path. Look for a distinct clearing in the trees above.

Today the cemetery is in very poor condition and is quite overgrown. Some stones have fallen. I found five unidentifiable markers. This cemetery was cleared off as recently as 1976, in honor of America's Bicentennial, by local resident and Marine World War II veteran Carl Amos along with his sons and other local veterans. Two modern issue stones for two veterans buried here were dedicated on Memorial Day in 1978.

I walked the cemetery on Nov 28, 2008. This transcription is complete and includes all existing stones. I also have digital photographs of all the stones as well as many views of the cemetery itself and would share them with anyone interested.
