From Babcock Blvd. heading south, make a right onto Cemetery Lane,
up the hill approx. 1/4 mile, on your left is a dirt road. You can
drive up but not advised (rocky, uneven, narrow), the mud quickly
turns into grass/ground cover. There is a level spot in the middle
of the hill that looks like a car could use it.
In 2006 this cemetery was reported in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
to be owned by United Cemeteries where records may be available
and according to Behm Funeral Home, they have it listed as United
Cemetery. Also called African American Military Cemetery.
This cemetery is very hard to see from the road and is in very
bad shape. Only a few markers are still there, however, you can
see that there are many graves that are sunken in and it appears
that a few may have been robbed in the past.
This is a complete transcription of all of the stones and markers
that were there when I visited it on Mar 02, 2009. It appears
that this cemetery has been abandoned.
