Directions: In Aliquippa, travel Franklin Ave from Rt 51. Turn
right on Superior Ave. Follow Superior all the way up the hill to
Riverview Ave. The cemetery is located in a wooded area at the end
This cemetery was established by Serbian immigrants who founded
Saint Elijah Eastern Orthodox Church near this site in Aliquippa
between 1910-1912. They established this cemetery overlooking
the church in 1916 to bury those of their congregation who died
during the Great Flu Epidemic.
The cemetery was closed in 1919 with about 115 people buried
in it. The church still owns the land where the cemetery is located
even though the church moved to another location in 1956.
The cemetery is located on an extremely steep hill overlooking
the Ohio River. It is overgrown with weeds and trees and is not
maintained. Only a few stones remain. Even fewer are readible.
Those stones remaining have been overturned and knocked down the
hill. All except one of the stones were written in the Serbian
alphabet. I attempted to translate them into the Latin alphabet.
I walked and read this cemetery on Aug 22, 2008. It includes
all existing and legible stones or markers, with very few identifiable.
