Mountain View Cemetery
North St - West Hazleton, PA
From time to time, my daily walk with little Harvey takes a detour through the cemetery to visit Grandma and Grandpa. We've walked through just about every part of the cemetery over the past eight years, and I've found quite a few other family members in the process. They're not all buried in the same section, so it's very likely that there are others that I haven't found yet.
I'm going to look through some of my old photos and do a little research so that I can write more about each of them later on. For right now, here are the photos of the headstones that I was able to find.
