My sister, Dot, and I recently visited the Flintstone area again in our quest for Robinette grave sites. When returning to Pa in the late afternoon, we spied a cemetery on a hill in a cow pasture, just before the PA line, on Black Valley Rd. After inquiring at the nearest house, we were given permission to access what I would call The Browning Cemetery. It is surrounded by a dilapildated chain link fence and inhabited by at least one overweight groundhog. Here are the headstones we could read:
Ephraim Browning, b. May 2, 1800,
d. Mar. 27, 1892, aged 91 y., 10 m., 25 d.
Anna, wife of Ephraim, Browning, d. May 18, 1877, aged 75 y - See Census Below.
James Browning, b. Oct. 24, 1828,
d. May 20, 1908
Eliza, wife of James Browning, b. Feb. 6, 1883 (probably 1830 dob), d. Jan. 31. 1895 - See Census Below.
On a three-arched stone were three children, a name and date
within each arch, as follows:
Reba, d. 1901; Leonidas, d. 1805; James, d. 1916
And at the bottom of this three-arched stone was written: children of L. and Rachel Dicken
There was also one tall unreadable stone of a Browning
Massie, wife of Wm. Markle, d. May 23, 1908. Aged 68 y., 11 m., 9 d.
Jacob, son of E. & A. Browning (dates unreadable) - See Census Below
8 stones stacked beside the fence. The one on top read: Susanna Browning - See Census Below. It was obviously a child but the rest was unreadable since it is flat and fully exposed to the weather. We didn't disturbed the rest of the stack.
