THE CATHERINE MICHAEL CEMETERY
(Inventoried and contributed by Buddy Duckworth)

 

LOCATION: Go to the top of Douglas Avenue from Lonaconing, turn Left at the Brethern Church at the top on Douglas Avenue. This road is passable with a fourwheel drive, I would not want to take a car down that road. It is steep and it exits at the Laurel Run into Moscow. It is better to go to the top of Douglas Avenue and travel down the road.

The earliest burial that I could determine is:

That is all that I could locate on May 30, 2000, This Cemetery is located on what is now State owned Land. The Graves have sunken in very deep. This Cemetery is in much need of repair and care taking.
