SKINNER'S EDDY or GHOST HILL CEMETERY

Braintrim Twp., Wyo. Co., Penna.

 

This little old abandoned cemetery is located on the steep bank back of the village of Skinner's Eddy off the extension eastward of the town of Laceyville, overlooking the community, U. S. Route 6, and the majestic Susquehanna beyond. The cemetery was commenced some years later than the Black Walnut burying ground, further down the river, where so many members of the family of Rev. Samuel Sturdevant lie buried. The entire area is now fully served by the Lacey Street Cemetery, on the river above Laceyville.
