|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Bowser Cemetery is in Washington Township in Armstrong County, Pennsylvania. It is north of the village of Morrows Corner.
Directions: From Adrian on Reesdale Road, drive east (actually you will be driving north) on Reesedale Road. You will immediately see the Montgomeryville Baptist Church on the left. Go another 0.5 miles on Reesedale Road and turn left on Sharrett Road. There is no sign for "Sharrett Road." but you will see a small sign pointing to the left, and indicating "SHERRETT 4 miles." Drive 1.7 miles on Sharrett Road, then turn right onto Center School Road. Drive 0.4 miles whereupon you will be driving downhill on a very sharp turn to the left on a gravel road. Halfway through this turn you will see the sign for the cemetery on the right side of the road.
Parking on this curve might be dangerous so you might want to drive further down the hill and park on the straightaway. There is a dirt road leading up to the cemetery, but it is meant mostly for ATVs. The cemetery is a short walk from Center School Road anyway. Simply walk up the dirt road for 20 feet, then turn right and walk another 50 feet. You will see the gravestones. There are only three gravestones with a total of five names.
The cemetery is enveloped by woods, but these are nice, "clean" woods with no annoying undergrowth (no briars, and only a minor amount of poison ivy). There is a slight slope, but it is not too bad. It's a two minute walk from Center School Road. The initial hill up from the road is fairly steep for a distance of 10 feet, but there is probably a way around it.
Please note that the cemetery sign is completely invisible to people traveling from the opposite direction on Center School Road.
