The St Clair Cemetery has its first known burial in 1804. Until about
1858 or so, only members of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church
of Saw Mill Run turned St Clair turned Mt Lebanon United Presbyterian
Church could be buried there. After that time, remaining plots could
be sold. I posted a know list of later plot owners on the St Clair
When the Mt Lebanon Cemetery opened around 1900 or right before- it was
considered fashionable by some to move their family members from St
Clair Cemetery to the new, fancy Mt Lebanon Cemetery. They are
directly across from each other.
And there would be no "known" sections as the man who knew it all has
long been gone and his family did not see any reason to hold on the
paperwork-- what a tremendous loss for us all--
