Genealogy of the Woodcock Valley

Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania

Sheridan Cemetery


 This cemetery is located in Union Township, Huntingdon County, and can be accessed from Route 829 near the intersection of Chilcote’s and Morgan’s Roads.  There is an old abandoned school adjoining the cemetery.

 Some of the graves were very hard to read, and it is possible some of the dates and/or ages could be incorrect.
