Cemetery notes and/or description:

Venango County Poor Farm

County Farm Cemetery 1873 - 1920


Research by: Joyce Neidich, Franklin, PA

Note: From what I can see while trying to figure out who these people are, and where they came from, I wouldn't actually consider all of them 'inmates'. This seemed to be more of a house of kindness. Many of the people here had physical disabilities, or they became too old to care for themselves and didn't have family. There are men and women that came from other countries with no family in the area. There are many women with spouses that died before them; some old, some with children and no way to care for them. Some with petty crimes of stealing and considered 'insane', probably Autistic. I'm not seeing anybody with major crimes.
