Those Places Thursday - Rockdale Cemetery

Rockdale Cemetery is located off of Rockdale Road in Penn Township, Butler County, PA. In older obituaries, it is also referred to as Thorn Creek Cemetery. It is not far from the small Thorn Creek or the Thorn Creek Church. I was able to visit with beautiful cemetery many where several of my Cubbage ancestors are interred. Thankfully, there is the "Rock Dale Cemetery" sign, as the cemetery is not visible from the road.

We drove up on a windy unpaved road along a farm to find this small cemetery. This beautiful setting is on a hill, nestled is the woods between two farms. 

We easily found the tombstones for my second great grandparents, James and Barbara Black Cubbage, and two of their children, Sarah and Mary Ann Cubbage.

It was such a beautiful fall day to finally see the resting place of these ancestors. These pictures really don't capture the beauty of the views from this cemetery.
