African-American Military Cemetery
Cemetery Lane, Ross Twp., PA


(Directions: 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.

Viewer's Note: There are many obvious unmarked grave indentations and possibly a few more markers covered by overgrowth, it is very high.
