     Taken from the Westmoreland County Historical Society Cemetery Index: The first congregation in Washington Township was the Poke Run Presbyterian.  The first church building was erected on property donated by Nathaniel McBrier in exchange for the right to a certain pew in the church and the piviledge of approving others who would share the same pew.  The church had its own cemetery, part of the McBrier property.

     DIRECTIONS TO CEMETERY: Take Route 66 North from Mamont.  Turn right onto Poke Run Church Road and follow it to the cemetery which adjoins the church.
