About:

Bensalem Presbyterian Church in Bucks County has an ancient, small cemetery behind the church. There are soldiers from the Revolutionary War, The War of 1812, and the Civil War buried here. Some are in unmarked graves.

I don't think they would attempt to dig another grave here, as it is probably full. But they do have a new memory garden where cremated remains can be interred.

The church only has around 90 members, with perhaps 50 showing-up on a typical Sunday.

What was unusual about my visit here is a friendly old fella from the church struck-up a conversation with me, and he then gave me a 412 page book about the history of Bensalem Presbyterian Church. It's a very nice book. The book also shows who is buried where and details the story of an Eagle Scout candidate who undertook the cemetery's restoration as his Eagle Scout project back in 2005.

No other cemetery operator has given me anything like this book... so I was very surprised and impressed. (Photo of book below.)
