This cemetery is behind the Church of Ascension in Mocanaqua, PA on Hwy 239. The date on the oldest gravestone is unreadable, and the cemetery is currently in use.  Part of the cemetery is on a rocky hillside which has a few graves and a large monument. Most of the graves are in rows perpendicular to the wall and road below the hill. The road is the one-way entrance to the cemetery and the listing below counts the rows from the gate onward.
