Directions: From Rt

in the woods on a steep and precarious incline.
Some History: Serbian
immigrants founded this cemetery in 1916 to meet the needs caused by
the Great Flu Epidemic that claimed millions of lives around the globe
between 1916-1918. The cemetery belongs to St Elijah Serbian Eastern
Orthodox Church. The cemetery was closed in 1919 with about 115 people
buried here. There is a newer St. Elijah Cemetery on Brodhead Road,
Hopewell. Originally the church was located near the cemetery,
but has moved to another location in Hopewell. The church still owns
this old cemetery. The cemetery is located on a steep hill
overlooking the Ohio River at the end of Riverview Ave. The
cemetery is not maintained and is overgrown with weeds and trees. The
stones are overturned and have fallen down the hillside. Those stones
that are visible are written in the Cyrillic alphabet and the majority
are partially or totally illegible due to weathering. Since I am
unfamiliar with the Cyrillic alphabet, I have translated the names as
best I can. If there are any errors, please let me know and I will
correct them. -- Liane.
