PIGEON CREEK REDD FAMILY CEMETERY INFORMATION CARD
WASHINGTON CO., PA.

Hazelkirk Road

Photos taken by nacs/cahs


Cemetery Name: Pigeon Creek Redd Family Cemetery 

Address: 

Phone:  n/a

Location: 

Directions:  Pigeon Creek along Hazelkirk Rd. going south toward Bentleyville before getting to Redd's Mill & Old Tavern area - goes with the ones I already sent you. Private Drive, had to stop and ask permission before going on this. 

Background:  Affiliated with the Redd family (Nathaniel? - I'd have to look and see to make sure about this) that had a mill run on Pigeon Creek, the Tavern - which was known for miles around. 

The one that I just took pics for you can get to by getting off of I-70 at Bentleyville and then go past the Newkirk Cemetery and turn left by the old Newkirk Presbyterian Church (last a restuarant) and turn left on Hazelkirk Road by the Development area, and go until you come to the sharp curve to the left where the Old Redd Mill and Tavern is/was.  Very little was visible on these stones that I could read - I discerned an ANN Redd and a Rebecca Redd were the only ones that I could tell for sure.

"Solomon Redd was a son of Nathaniel Redd, who kept a tavern in this section as early as 1800 and until 1820. Peter Redd, another member of the family, kept a tavern in 1816-17. Solomon lived near the mouth of Maple Creek, where he owned and operated a still-house. Thomas Redd, who was captain of the ill-fated steamboat "Lander," was also of this family and a resident of Fallowfield township. He died a few years ago near Cameron, Va." (Crumrine)

A Thomas Redd is the one that ended up having a farm at the mouth of Maple Creek and had the first and only hotel/tavern that "had a liquor license" for 18 years in Wash. Co. - this property was sold and became the southern part of Charleroi, PA. 

Census: Pictures show at least 20 stones; may be more unmarked graves.
