Driving directions from the Hickory Street bridge in Warren (3 miles, 7 minutes): Drive east on Pennsylvania Ave W/US-6 (business route) to Market Street. Turn left on Market Street and drive north into North Warren. Turn left at a traffic light onto Jackson Run road (PA route 69). About 1/2 mile from the red light at the junction of Rt. 69 and Rt. 60 (Market St. Ext.), look for a large cluster of tall pine trees that mark the entrance on the north side of the hightway. Parking is ample in a designated area, just off the highway. Walking is the only way to access the cemetery which is on a gently sloping hillside.

To the left is the headstone of Ignatz Barczinski, with one date: May 6, 1926.
His Certificate of Death, file #62353, provides only slightly more information. He was a single white male, age 79, born in Poland.
He died of chronic myocarditis, with dementia (praecox?) as a contributory cause. There was no autopsy.
The informant on the death certificate was a doctor at the hospital, W. K. Skinner.
