|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
On private land, the Everhart - Kees Cemetery is reported to be the burial spot for George Everhart and his wife Barbara Brendle, as well as several family members of both the Everhart and Kees family.
There are many stones, all neatly arranged, with only a few still readable. There is a newer stone erected in the Cemetery in honor of George and Barbara Everhart. Please note that the only stones that had any readable inscription already have pictures added. No other stones are readable.
George Everhart, orginally from Germany, was residing in Lancaster, Pennsylvania when he enlisted in the Revolutionary War. He was aboard the Hyder Allyn when they engaged in battle with the General Monk, near the entrance of the Delaware Bay.
After the war, George and his wife Brenda settled in the Jones Spring area (near present day Hedgesville). The Cemetery is on the site of the former George Everhart Farm (currently on the Ward Nicklin property) and members of the Everhart-Kees family have erected a fence and preserved the family burial area.
