ALBRIGHT- BENNETT

Route 191, Dreher Township,

Newfoundland, Wayne County, PA

 

              

 

This cemetery was originally two separate cemeteries.  The Albright, or left side of the cemetery, was affiliated with the Albrecht Evangelical Church, built in 1854 and located at the front of the cemetery along Routes 191 and 507.  The Bennett, or right side, was originally a family burial ground.  The Albright Cemetery (Anglicized from Albrecht) was established on the property of Charles David Wolfe Jr. and his wife Catherine Rohrbacker.  The Bennett Cemetery was established in the mid-1880s on the farm of Jeremiah Bennett and Elizabeth Clements.  The original Bennett farmhouse is located adjacent to the cemetery.  During the Flood of 1955 many of the cemetery markers were swept away, others were toppled and broken.  Unfortunately the records of plots and ownership were destroyed so that there is no way of knowing the exact locations of some of the graves.  In 1957 a small burial ground was discovered about one-half mile south of the Bennett Cemetery.  It had long ago been covered over and any markers had been lost.  The remains of eleven persons were carefully excavated and reburied in the Bennett Cemetery, but their identities were never discovered.  Traces of the original road that separated the two cemeteries can still be seen as a slight depression in the land running between the road and the creek.  At one time this road was the access to Mountainview Road, and the creek did not have a bridge, only a ford.  In 1964, the Albright and Bennett Cemeteries were joined under the management of the Bennett Memorial Cemetery Association, which currently maintains the cemetery.
