The Braddock Cemetery or Old Braddock Cemetery is located off of Brinton Road
On Locust Street in North Braddock, PA.

The cemetery was started by the Hebron Lutheran Church in East Pittsburgh about 140 years ago.
Locals recognize the cemetery by the name Russell Cemetery. Pastor William Russell and members of the Russell family
are buried in Braddock Cemetery. Over the years as the size of the Hebron Lutheran Church congregation dwindled,
so did its ability to maintain the cemetery and its records.

There are no posted section markings. Records for the years 1948 thru 1952 were lost in a fire.
