COMMEMORATIVE SERVICE PLANNED
Pine Creek Cemetery - Sunday, May 4, 1:00 PM
Orchard Park residents are invited to attend a special service being planned to remember a figure from our history. On Sunday, May 4th, at 1 PM, we will gather at the Pine Creek Cemetery (on North Pioneer Road behind the Quality Inn) to remember Richard Morrow, on the 150th anniversary of his death at the Battle of the Wilderness in 1864. Richard was the youngest son of Richard and Mary Morrow, early pioneers who settled the land upon which a large part of Orchard Park now sits. We thought it fitting to remember this young man and acknowledge his sacrifice as the nation observes the Civil War's sesquicentennial. Pastor Dan Muttart of the First Presbyterian Church of Bakerstown will be participating in the service as will re-enactors from the 9th Pennsylvania Reserves. Among them will be Jim Smith, whose march to Gettysburg for the 150th anniversary of that battle was covered in a Post-Gazette article last year.
