Here is another cemetery in Youngstown, Pa. It is very small, only 65 
tombstones. The minister from the Hope Ev. Methodist Church which is next to 
this small cemetery has maintained the grounds for 20 years.

The cemetery is located on Church Street in Youngstown, Pa., just across the 
road from St. James Ev. Lutheran Church Cemetery. St. James is located on Rt. 
982. Church Street is the side street that runs along it's cemetery.

This listing is the entire cemetery.

These are NOT in alphabetical order but written as I walked the cemetery.
Tombstones side by side.
