     Directions to site: Located on Latrobe Street in the Village of Youngstown at the south end of town.

     Taken from the Westmoreland County Historical Society Cemetery Index: On January 14, 1815 the members of the Lutheran and Reformed churches of Youngstown entered into an article of agreement to establish a Union Church. The erected a log house of worship that was dedicated in the fall of 1815 . By 1867 the two congregations went their separate ways, with each church building a new house of worship. The Lutheran congregation purchased a lot adjacent to the original site. A cemetery had been established at the site. Under the leadership of Rev. W. E. Bauer the congregation secured an additional twenty acres of land which was also developed as a cemetery-it was referred to as "Upper St. James Cemetery".
