Description

Two maps showing a grid of cemetery lots and numbers, with the names of the persons buried there. The burial ground was located at the southeast corner of what is now 16th St. and Fairmount Ave.

Sometime between 1860 and 1875, the burial ground had been sold, the bodies disinterred, and the land developed into housing. The second map has notations of "x" and "out" to indicate that bodies had been moved.
