Background: This is the cemetery of the Robinson Church located in Bavington. The cemetery is still in use. According to Boyd Crumrine’s, "History
of Washington County, Pennsylvania with Biographical Sketches of many of it's
Pioneers and Prominent Men" (Philadelphia: L. H. Leverts & Co., 1882),
in Aug 27, 1833, the Presbytery of Chartiers approved a church at Robinson after
the local residents petitioned several times for their own place of worship
separate from Burgettstown and Montour. Land was donated to the Church for a
burial ground by Matthew Bigger, the oldest son of Thomas and Elizabeth,
belonging to him adjoining the Church property. The first burial was Maria, the
daughter of John and Sarah Wilson, May 22, 1833.
Census: Published in "Miscellaneous Cemeteries, Washington Co., PA", Vol. 3. This data was collected by the DAR. Copy available in genealogical collection at Citizens Library and Washington Law Library, Washington, PA.
