Several of my ancestors (Joseph Woodward, wife Hope Shotwell,

direct lines...Abraham 1) SHOTWELL was my 10th gr gf...

> I was able to make out some of the graves but others were too worn. How would I find out more about who was buried in Sandy Hill? Would someone have a record of graves? There was evidence of recent burial. The sign on the fence indicates it is a Quaker Cemetery established in 1819. Joseph Woodward came from Chester Co to Fayette Co with brothers Caleb, John, Joshua, and sisters Ann and Elizabeth. He bought land and lived in Fayette Co where he died in 1856. Sandy Hill Union Church is adjacent but is not listed in the New Salem church list. Any help
