|Find a Grave||Glen Dyberry Cemetery|
Glen Dyberry Cemetery is located in Honesdale, Pennsylvania.
The cemetery, enclosed by a wall, is reached by crossing a bridge over the Dyberry Creek, which separated the town from the cemetery. Buildings in the cemetery include a mausoleum built in 1891 and a superintendent's house.
The Honesdale Cemetery Company was incorporated by prominent Delaware & Hudson Canal Co. officials from an act dated January 26, 1854. Mr. and Mrs. John Torrey sold 18 acres near Dyberry Creek for $2,000 in 1859 for the cemetery and 49 lots were sold during the first sale. Roads named Central Avenue, Hillside, Willow, and Winding Way were laid out within the cemetery. It opened on November 25, 1859.
Members of prominent families—Appley, Dimmick, Greene, Lord, Searle, Torrey, and Young—are buried at Glen Dyberry. About 4,000 people were buried in the cemetery as of 1947. Soldiers who fought in the War of 1812 and the American Civil War are buried there.
