     DIRECTIONS TO CEMETERY:  Take old Route 30 from Adamsburg west to SR4015 (Brush Creek Road) and turn right.  Cemetery is 0.5 miles down, next to Brush Creek Lutheran and Brush Creek United Church of Christ churches.


     Taken from Westmoreland County Historical Society Cemetery Index: Many Germans came to this area from eastern Pennsylvania over the Forbes and Bouquet Roads.  When they got as far as Andrew Byerly's they turned to the southwest and established themselves in the St. Walthour community.  It was also called the Brush Creek community.  The Lutheran and Reformed churches represented by these people formed a church in the area, surrounded by a neatly kept burial yard.
