     Taken from the Westmoreland County Historical Society Cemetery Index: The Sewickley United Presbyterian Church was founded in 1792.  Although there were members in the area prior to that time, meetings were held in tents and buildings.  The Sewickley Union Cemetery serves the church.  It is said to contain the grave of a girl slain and scalped in the Indian uprising of 1782.  It is believe that the church shared a pastor with Old Sewickley Presbyterian from 1779 - 1787 when the relationship was disrupted over the site of the new church.  In 1807 a log building was erected at the site, which was replaced by a brick building in 1832.  The Sewickley Union Cemetery takes care of the burials in the cemetery associated with the church.

     DIRECTIONS TO CEMETERY: On the West Newton - Herminie Road not far from Hutchinson.
