Masons Ridge Cemetery
Dunkard, Greene County, Pennsylvania

Masons Ridge cemetery is on a knoll the high side is to your left as you come in the side gate. The upper left corner seems very crowded and did not really seem to be laid out in rows. The lower end show impressions of grave but no markers.

Read by Connie J. Cable and Maybelle V.Vance 15 APR 2004 and 21 APR 2004. This reading is in alpha order. We have added some information gleaned from other sources i.e. Death Records of Greene County, and calculated events. Someone obviously cares for this cemetery. The grass is mowed and it is in good shape. Whoever does that need's a big THANK YOU!
