Vandegrift Cemetery - Cornwells Heights

This cemetery dates back to circa 1775. I grew up near it. It was not well cared for in the 1960s, with tombstones having fallen over and the grass was only cut a few times a summer. There were a few medallions marking Revolutionary War soldiers. We used to like to read the epitaphs on the tombstones, although they were often almost worn away. One time, we were pulling off ivy that covered a fallen tombstone, trying to read it. We eventually could make it out: Who Is This Who Wakes Me From My Sleep? We got scared and ran away.
