Description

Two maps showing a grid of cemetery lots and numbers, each lot having a name inscribed. The burying ground was located at the southeast corner of what is now 16th St. and Fairmount Ave.

The second map has indications such as "x" or "OUT" to indicate the bodies had been moved. Sometime between 1860 and 1875, the burial ground had been sold, the bodies disinterred, and the land developed into housing.
