25 October 2009 Erie County Cemetery

Two Civil War Veteran Graves

Old Pennsylvania veteran marker

We were hunting a cache in this area so I wanted to stop and walk this old cemetery to see if there were any Revolutionary Vets here. We were here a number of years ago looking for a since archived cache. At that time, the cemetery was being maintained, It looks as if the site is now abandoned. Blackberries and a number of shrubs have gotten hold of a large portion of the grounds. In a few years, the burial ground will be barely visible from the road. Someone appears to be trying to keep alive the memory of those buried here. There were a number of fairly new homemade pvc crosses marking grave sites where the stones are now gone or only fieldstones exist to mark a grave.
