The Seiler/Saylor Burial ground is located on top of the 'second hill' of the original Three Hill's estate of John Seiler. The hill is part of a reclaimed strip mine, and sits among a clump of tree's. The cemetery is in very bad shape, being covered with briers, and most of the tombstones are weathered, broken, or laying on the ground. Several groundhog holes are adjacent to some of the tombstones. Access is difficult since the 219 by-pass cut's off access to Saylor Hill Road, so you have to hoof it. You proceed up Saylor Hill Road (a cindered road) about 2500 feet, then a road perpendicular to Saylor Hill Road branches to the right. You proceed about 1000 feet to the top of the hill, and on your right is a small clump of trees. The area in general is beginning to be overgrown, so you need to look for the tallest trees, on the southeast corner of the hill. A rough layout of the cemetery is located here.
