Old Thompson Pioneer Cemetery
Union City, PA
This small cemetery is located on an overgrown hill which stands in the crescent of land between Rte. 6 and O’Dell Street, on the southern edge of Union City, PA. These inscriptions were copied by Mrs. Kristen Koehler and Mrs. Linda Ditrich in May 1973. Nineteen headstones were found, but one was so fragmentary that no information could be taken from it. Another was also badly fragmented but bore the surname THOMPSON. The following are the inscriptions of the remaining seventeen stones.
