The Miller Family Cemetery, Bentleyville


Submitted by Grayce Ezarik

     The Miller Family Cemetery is located in Somerset Township, Rural Delivery Route Bentleyville, Pennsylvania, out Lincoln Avenue Extention, turn left after passing the Bentworth High School on toChippewa Road.
     The cemetery is located on the right, maybe 100 yards off the road at 128 Chippewa Road, on the 16th green, sitting on the
perimeter of the course. The backdrop is a stand of trees and surrounded by the freshly mowed grass. The cemetery is visited
frequently by the golfers that pass that way on the back nine.
     There is a maintained white fence around the graves and the weeds are kept down by the frequent mulching of bark by the maintainence crew of the golf course.
     The Miller Family may have lived in the building that had stood adjacent to the Clubhouse. It has since been razed.
     The plot is approx. 20X10 feet and is visible from the macadam road.  The cemetery is located right on Chippewa Golf Course.
