Background: This is the cemetery of the Venice Presbyterian Church, which was once a U.P. church but is now a Presbyterian USA church. There are some very old graves here.  There is little known historically about the Venice Presbyterian Cemetery. 

The Venice Presbyterian Church (USA), and its predecessors know by other similar names, has always met in the same general location. Beginning in September of the year 1849 and continuing through to this day, the Church has gathered for worship, ministry, and fellowship activities along Route 50. 

The original congregation belonged to the Associate Presbyterian Church, and co-existed in the area with the Associate Reformed Congregation of Millers Run that was organized approximately one year later. In 1858 their two Presbyterian denominations merged nationally; and so too did these two Venice congregations merge. Thus on November 8, 1858, the Venice United Presbyterian Church was formed. 

The earliest burial in Venice Presbyterian Church Cemetery shown in the data is April 1858. 

Census:  This data was collected by the DAR and found in the genealogy section of the Washington PA library. The date is from 1937 so the burial records are not complete. 
Published in "Miscellaneous Cemeteries, Washington Co., PA", Vol. 3. Copy available in genealogical collection at Citizens Library and Washington Law Library, Washington, PA. 

More Information: For information on burials, write or call the church. The secretary is very helpful.
