Newman Cemetery, Hallstead/Great Bend, PA
Directions: Go east on highway 171 from the Hallstead/Great Bend exit of I-81,
about 1.25 or 1.50 miles from the Mobil Station at the exit. As you go up the hill,
there's a small sign on the right. You can't see the cemetery from the road. The
gravel lane into the cemetery sits an such an angle that it would be an impossible
right turn as you come up the hill, so it's best to go to the top of the hill, turn
around and approach the entrance that way.

Many of the older stones are in so weathered or crusted with mold they can barely
be read. Many of the plots lack existing stones, but someone has started putting
rough slate field stones with hand-carved names and dates on a number of plots.
I'm assuming this is based on cemetery records since it doesn't seem limited to
only one or two families. Some new stones in the new section of the cemetery
are not included in this list.
Please note that I do not live in Susquehanna County, had limited time in the cemetery,
and do not at this time have additional information about the cemetery. Some years ago,
I wrote to the Newman family, who still owned or managed it, for information based on burial
records, but was told some records had disappeared as the collection was passed down from
one person to another over the years…. Bob Green
