Street, Dwight E. Cemetery

11 North 5 West (Pitman) Section 31. This cemetery, and the single grave 30 feet to the north of the cemetery, are listed as 11-5-3 Street Cemetery and 11-5-4 Dwight E Street Cemetery on the MCGS cemetery list. Miller Wood originally purchased this land in 1836. This cemetery is a fine example of successful preservation efforts. Prior to restoration 75% of the stones were underground and there were so many fallen trees you could not see the markers. The cemetery was restored in the early 1990's by the McLean and Bethard families. The earliest burial is from 1852. Many Civil War soldiers and their families are buried at Street Cemetery. The property was deeded over to Montgomery County long ago by George Noah Sharp. Photos taken by Carol Hounsell and Ann Stoddard
