A Partial listing for

The Laurel Cemetery 

Of 

White Haven, Pa.

(Luzerne County)

The Laurel Cemetery is a very old cemetery, with burials beginning well before 1850, probably reaching back into the 1830s.Located along Rt. 940 on the western edge of the borough, it is surrounded by an old stone wall with iron gates. The entire cemetery is well kept and even the older stones seem well preserved.

            This is only a partial list of burials in the Laurel, a sampling of families I recorded during a visit. Although it is Luzerne, not Carbon County, early White Haven had strong ties to Weatherly and Mauch Chunk, being a railroad and canal link with Wilkes Barre and the Susquehanna Valley.

The families listed here are my own relations (Koons and Schatzle) and some other families with strong connections to Carbon County.

          This list is arranged in the alphabetical order of the PLOT OWNER, not of the burial. This keeps the family groups together.  The person listed as plot owner is the eldest male occupant of that plot (and is not necessarily the original plot owner).
