Information Card for Grove United Presbyterian Cemetery 

Washington County, Pennsylvania Cemetery Database – compiled by Gina Nestor, 2001.

Cemetery Name: Grove United Presbyterian Cemetery 

Address: 125 E. Main St., West Middletown, PA 15379 (church Address: ) 

Phone: (724) 587-3754 (church) 

Latitude:  40°14' 32.04"N

Longitude: 80° 25' 6.21"W

Directions: From Washington, PA follow Jefferson Ave west to the intersection of PA Route 18N and PA 844 West, follow PA 844 for 9.2 miles, cemetery is on left just before the church.

Location: Rt. 844 in West Middletown, Hopewell Twp., Washington Co., PA. Approximately 9 miles outside of Washington, PA. 

Background:  The cemetery that is beside the church belongs to the church. The cemetery across Rte. 844 is the West Middletown Community Cemetery and is not associated with the church.

According to Boyd Crumrine's "History of Washington County, Pennsylvania with Biographical Sketches of Many of Its Pioneers and Prominent Men" (Philadelphia: L. H. Leverts & Co., 1882), the old minutes of this congregation have not been preserved, so that it is difficult to know the date of its organization. From the best information it was organized about 1810. The cemetery must date from the same time as the DAR data shows the first internment as 1810.

The DAR report says that “two Confederate soldiers who died at the Prison Camp near Claysville are buried in this cemetery as are three emigrants who took ill and died on their trek west to the Ohio Territory” with many old stones unreadable. 

Census:  This data was collected by the DAR and found in the genealogy section of the Washington PA library. The data is from 1937 so the burial records are not complete. Published in "Miscellaneous Cemeteries, Washington Co., PA", Vol. 1, 1937. Copies in genealogical collection at Citizens Library and Washington Law Library in Washington, PA. 

More Information: According to historical records, the church and associated cemetery were also referred to as the United Presbyterian Congregation of West Middletown.

According to a local history source, during the days of the Underground Railway escaping slaves were frequently concealed in the old church. (
