Information Card for Westland (Quaker) Cemetery

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

Cemetery Name: Westland (Quaker) Cemetery 



Location: Ridge Rd., south of Rt. 40 at Centerville in Centerville Borough. Centerville Borough was organized from parts of E. Bethlehem and W. Pike Run Twps. 

Background: Large cemetery that is still used today. It originally belonged to the Society of Friends (Quakers) whose meetings started in 1790 and ended in 1864. The cemetery is the site of the Westland Quaker Meeting House. Many of the Quaker graves are unmarked because Quakers did not believe in marking their graves. 

Census: Published in "Washington County Cemeteries, East and West Pike Run Twps., and Related Burials", compiled by Floyd Gillis. Copy in genealogical collection at Citizens Library, Washington, PA. 

More Information: In the "Keyhole" Volume XIII, No. 4, pp. 155-156 are listed the people thought to be interred in the Quaker section. A census is also published in "Miscellaneous Cemeteries, Washington Co., PA", Vol. 3. Copies available in genealogical collection at Citizens Library and Washington Law Library, Washington, PA.
