Westenhaver Cemetery
Penn Township, Section 27

This Cemetery is very difficult to access. It is located on a high bluff above South Walnut Creek, in the southeast corner shown on page 31 of the 1909 Atlas of Jefferson County. It is also on our website map of Penn Township. The graveyard contained two gravestones and indications of a third unmarked grave when it was located and read on 8 September 1970 by Mr. Emerson Masden, Mr. Robert Schillerstrom and Mr. O. L. Prill. This information was taken from the back of a family sheet on page 102 of Jefferson County Records, Vol. 8 by Orville and Mary Prill.
