The layout of the plots
in Mauch Chunk Cemetery does not make the finding of a particular grave
easy. The best thing to go by is the section number, since the plot
numbering is mostly arbitrary. Plot 766 is not between plots 765
and 767, for example. Plot numbers were given out as the plots were
sold. So, the best way to find a specific grave is to know where
the section is, and then take a leisurely stroll, back and forth,
reading the gravestones. With patience, the grave will eventually
be found, assuming there is a grave marker to be found.
Many of the older graves either never had grave markers, or else they have
deteriorated over time. This is most common in section 1 and 2. So,
bring patience, sharp eyes and walking shoes, and good luck!

The Leisenring Cemetery
lies at the east, or lower end of the Mauch Chunk Cemetery. It is
a separate, and private, cemetery and a stone wall separates it from the
main cemetery. The gates are kept locked at all times.
