Presbyterian Cemetery
West Alexander, Washington County, Pennsylvania

108 W Main Street, West Alexander PA

Lat: 40° 06' 17"N, Lon: 80° 30' 34"W
Donegal Township

Contributed by Gary L Caldwell, May 21, 2010, last edited Jun 07, 2010 [caldwell.gary@gmail.com]. Total records = 130.

Take the West Alexander exit from Interstate Route 70 (about 15 miles west of Washington, PA), follow Old Brick Road for 0.1 mi and continue on Maple Ave for 0.1, turn left on Main Street for 0.2 mi, cemetery is on left.

The minutes show that the first Presbytery on November 19, 1785 had a request for supplies from the Three Ridges (West Alexander) church. The fact seems well established that the ground for the cemetery was consecrated at the same time as the church was established. The first services were held under a large oak tree which afterwards was called "The Preaching Oak".

Each Memorial Day, the American Legion places flags on the veterans graves, dating back to the Revolutionary War.

This data was collected by the DAR and found in the genealogy section of the Washington PA library. The data is from 1937 so the burial records may not be complete.
