The Old Zimmerman Cemetery

 

In The

Mahoning Valley

 

From grave stone transcriptions done by

Kimberley Dreisbach Keys

 

The Zimmerman Cemetery is located along Rt. 902 in the Mahoning Valley, between St. Johnís Lutheran Church and the blinking light at the New Mahoning intersection.It is on private land and is not visible from the highway.Many of the stones are old and illegible, some are engraved in Pennsylvania German.Where there is uncertainty about the transcription, a question mark appears in the list.

 

Individual stones are separated by dashes ( ------ ), the plots separated byasterisks (******).
