|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
BLACKMORE CEMETERY is about 1 mile from Scenic Valley Golf Club on Church Hill Rd., Peters Township, Washington Co., PA.
The work of Thomas Barry Gotham states that his 4th great grandfather Samuel Blackmore, Jr. is buried in 'Black Friars' in a cemetery near Library, PA. The cemetery has no name to it but is referred to as the 'Blackmore Cemetery' by the small group of people that actually know it exists. Mostly the neighbors who live around there and a handful of researchers (Now yins too! HOW ABOUT THAT!). The family plots are on top of a hill surrounded by cornfields. At one time the plots were very picturesque with Osage trees surrounding the area and a fence around it. Unfortunately that is all gone. The cemetery is overrun by tall grass and weeds as you can tell by the pictures. I had to use a weed eater to get a clear picture of the tombstones. There are only 18 to 22 plots and most are readable. So we got fortunate to have Charles and Mary's still intact and readable. Most unfortunate is the fact the land has been bought out by a housing developer and the cemetery will soon have multiple houses around it. The developer does not know what they are going to do with the small cemetery but they do say the cemetery is under consideration. Consideration for what purposes I do not know.
