This picture is take from the east pointing west with the Bill Mast house on the right side middle of the screen. Imagine the tornado coming right at you through what used to be green trees. Engles Mill Road runs to the bottom left corner AND in a "Z" pattern up the hill in the distance. Over the hill directly through the "hole" in the trees cut by the tornado is Salisbury, PA. Piney Creek runs across the center of the photo.

Above the Mast Farm is the Englewood Farm (the original Clement Engle Farm). The farmhouse is dead center to the right of the white road.

To get to the Clement Engle cemetery: Just before you get to the Englewood Farmhouse from the Mast Farm there is a red gate on the south side of the road. The pasture that you see to the left of the farm buildings continues up the hill toward the left. The tree line continues also. The cemetery is located at the top of the pasture about 50 yards to the left of what you can see in the picture. It is through the red gate and about 1/4 mile through the pasture to the line of trees where the cemetery was located. BEWARE: the fence is electrified. You can crawl under it though without any trouble.

There is a Revolutionary War Veteran marker in the cemetery near Clement's unmarked grave. There are other Engle and Lowry grave stones also.
