Speer Spring Cemetery
Canonsburg, Washington County, Pennsylvania

Lat: 40° 15' 34"N, Lon: 80° 10' 31"W
North Strabane Township

Contributed by Gary L Caldwell, Aug 19, 2010 [caldwell.gary@gmail.com]. Total records = 205.

Directions from Canonsburg (at N. Central Avenue and E. Pike Street) take SR-980/E Pike Street for 0.5 miles, bear right onto Morganza Road for 0.1 miles, turn right or south onto Weavertown Road for 0.2 miles, the cemetery is on the right.

The Speer Spring Congregation of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church was organized in 1830. The first church was a small brick structure erected in near the bank of Chartiers Creek where the Speer Spring Cemetery still sits. The Speer Spring Cemetery was located next to the church on a parcel of land from the Speer farm.

The cemetery is no longer associated with a church and care of the cemetery has passed through many hands and organizations. There are a number of graves noted by the DAR that have flag holders showing veteran status but the graves are unmarked. There were also a number of tombstones that were down or unreadable.

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 are not complete.
