Bruckart Hougnendobler Burial Ground
West Hempfield Township

 

BRUCKART BURIAL GROUND “taken from document received from Grave Concerns” {my personal notes are in “{}”

“The Bruckart family burial ground, approximately 60 by 100 feet is on the farm of John F. Waser in West Hempfield township. It is situated in a woods and is difficult to locate. Indeed in Summer when the foliage and undergrowth are at their height, a visitor would be unable to locate it In order to find the graveyard one should turn off the Marietta turnpike at the United Brethren Church in Silver Springs village By following the dirt road in a southerly direction for half a mile leads over the railroad tracks to a dense woods. Here the traveler turns abruptly to the right, enters the woods, and about a quarter of a mile farther on the very edge of the woods he will find the burial ground. Of course the place receives no attention. It is indeed, a pitiable sight to behold: tombstones scattered on the ground almost covered with weeds and brambles; the place is scene of utter desolation. It is separated from the woods, by a dilapidated combination wire and wood fence. Adequately to describe it, one should refer to it as a place of burial in a dense woods. We visited it on April 27 1935. There were approximately 29 head stones in the graveyard at the time of our visit.
