Thanks to my husband, we have located the WELLER Family Cemetery. He and I were over there today & it's located not too far off of Linden Road. It's in extremely rough condition with headstones cracked and on the ground, many fallen trees and undergrowth, vines etc. with an old wrought iron fence surrounding it & this too is fallen down in places but footstones are readable as are 2 old headstones. There is a large granite marker with Daniel Sr. & his wife Elizabeth plus Daniel Jr. & his wife Catherine plus dates of death carved on it. It has obviously been erected sometime in the not too distant past. I took photos but my camera is 35 mm & I'm waiting to have them developed.

This cemetery is sort of to the rear of 38 Linden Road, Canonsburg, PA. A GOOGLE Satellite map shows the area really well but not the cemetery which is obscured by the woods.

...noticed on the bottom right of the large newer granite stone, the name "COLWELL" is engraved. Is this the name of the engraver? Any information about this is welcome. I also found another stone which cleaned up pretty well also. On the stone is engraved the following: ELIZABETH WELLER wife William Boyles DIED April 23 1861 in the 60 year of her age. I explored the cemetery as much as possible but found no other stones except the one, even slightly visible.

Here are 4 new photos taken at the Weller Cemetery. They are captioned this time. The very light colored one is is the same as the one on the web page titled "unknown names" which is William Boyles' headstone .... 

If you have any questions or problems with the photos, please don't hesitate to contact me. My compliments to you on the Weller Cemetery web page. It is well done! - Clara Berry <99nimrodog AT comcast.net>
