Silverthorn - Weldon Burial Plot

Contributed by Bonnie R. Guilford


The information presented below was found as a picture image on Bill Klauk's computer. After further research, it was determined that this information was submitted several years ago by Bonnie Guilford, but was misplaced. It was further determined that this is a 1981 listing of a burial plot that was found about 200 feet from Silverthorn Road and 400 feet from Van Camp Road in McKean Township. No records were known of its existence, so the name Silverthorn-Weldon Burial Plot was given based on the names found on the stones. It is not known if this site is still in existence, or of its condition. I do not have any further information on this cemetery, but will certainly add any other information to this page as it becomes available. Please contact Bill Klauk if you have information concerning this burial plot.
