History | Burials

History:

This burying ground was associated with the Chester Preparative Meeting of Friends.

It was located on the west side of Edgmont Avenue, north of 6th street, directly across from the Sun Ray drug store on Edgmont Ave.

In 1946 the court refused approval to sell the site for mercantile purposes. At that time the bodies were to have been removed to Cumberland Cemetery in Middletown.

By October 1959 arrangements had been made to sell the land for new retail construction and at that time the remains were removed to various cemeteries including Chester Rural.
