     The Stone Hill Cemetery is located between Armbrust and New Stanton, Pa, about 1 mile out of Fox Town.  It is a very old cemetery that is not kept up except for family members.  There are Yucca plants and briars over a good part of the cemetery.  It is located in the woods with a tree line separating the new part from the older part.
