    Directions: From Burgettstown follow PA-18 N for 4.5 mi, turn left at Steubenville Pike (old Rt. 22) for 2.2 miles, cemetery is on the right just past the Church. The cemetery is about 2.5 files before Paris. (The Chestnut Ridge Cemetery is on the opposite side of the road.)

     This church (Methodist Episcopal) whose place of worship is the "Tucker Meetinghouse," was organized in 1824, by the Rev. Thomas Jamison. The original members were John Tucker and his wife, Jonathan Tucker and wife, James Jackson, and Elizabeth and Jane Hanlin. A small class had been formed previous to this time, and meetings were held in the house of Jonathan Tucker.

     A lot of land was purchased of John Tucker, situated on the Pittsburgh and Steubenville turnpike midway between Florence and Paris, and a stone meeting-house was built, which has been in use to the present time. The society has now under consultation the proposition to erect a new building in place of the present one.

     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.
