Monument Inscription:

Bingham Street M. E. Church

In Memory of those buried in the Bingham St. M. E. Church Cemetery 1839 - 1927


Pittsburgh Press, 17 Sep 1926, page 5


     On petition of trustees of the Binghim Street Methodist Episcopal church, the old burial grounds of the church at Brownsville rd., Hays ave. and Bertha way, Mt. Oliver were ordered vacated in Quarter Sessions court today by Judge John A. Evans.
     In their petition the trustees stated no burials have been made in the cemetery for over 20 years and that many of the bodies have been removed.  The presence of the cemetery, it was stated, hindered improvements.  The bodies still in the old burial plot will be removed to the Southside cemetery.


     Cemetery was previously administered by Bingham Street (a.k.a. Birmingham) M. E. Church which no longer exist.  Some graves were moved to the Southside Cemetery.
