     Directions: From Babcock Blvd. heading south, make a right onto Cemetery Lane; up the hill approx. 1/4 mile, on your left is a dirt road. You can drive up but not advised (rocky, uneven, narrow), the mud quickly turns into grass/ground cover. There is a level spot in the middle of the hill that looks like a car could use it. In 2006 this cemetery was reported in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette to be owned by United Cemeteries where records may be available (contributed from Norm Meinert's Page).
