GILPIN

Phillips Road, Dreher Township,

Newfoundland, Wayne County, PA

 

                                  

 

Richard Gilpin Sr. and his wife Mary Bortree left Ireland in 1809 and settled in East Sterling with their seven children.  They purchased 400 acres of land for a farm, and the Gilpin Cemetery was located behind their homestead on a wooded hillside above the Wallenpaupack Creek.  The cemetery contained approximately 79 graves plus seven small stones of undetermined origin.  Richard Gilpin Sr. has one of the most unique tombstones as it is slate-colored zinc tombstone.  Five Civil War veterans are also buried here and come from the Pennsylvania Infantry.  The most recent stone is dated 1938.  Greene-Dreher Historical Society acquired legal ownership of the cemetery in 2014, and has assumed management responsibility for the restoration and maintenance of the cemetery.  You can now drive up to the cemetery by car and park.  This was done by the efforts of Greene-Dreher Historical Society.
