     Directions From Eight-Four, PA: take PA-136 east for 2.0 mi; turn right at Brownlee Rd/State Route 1055 for 0.9 mi; turn left at Church Rd, cemetery will be on the left in about 0.2 mi, just before the Church.

    The cemetery is fairly large and still in use. The oldest burials are near the bottom of the hill below the church. Some of these date from the early 1800s. Newer burials are behind the church. The note from the DAR says "The Church is in fine condition having been repaired and is the third building on or near the same location.  Beautifully located on a high hill and a fine cemetery kept in fine condition."

    The Pigeon Creek Presbyterian Church was founded by Reverend John McMillan, August 24, 1775. It is the oldest churchwest of the Monongahela River.

    This data was collected by the DAR and found in the genealogy section of the Washington PA library. The data is from 1934.  The cemetery is still used  so the burial records are not complete.
