Tombstone Tuesday ~ Hunter Plots at Allegheny Memorial Park

In addition to visiting Union Dale Cemetery in late August 2017, my cousin, my husband, and I visited Allegheny Memorial Park. I am ever so grateful that my cousin was willing to drive us all over the North Side of Pittsburgh.

My cousin and I knew several family members buried at Allegheny Memorial. After we visited the office to get the burial location, one of the employees followed us and helped us find the plots, as these are in-ground markers and grass grows over them if they are not edged regularly.

He kindly edged them for us.

There are two plots, side by side of six burial lots each. There are burials in ten of the twelve lots. These six are on the left:

Tombstone Tuesday ~ Hunter Plot at Union Dale Cemetery Pittsburgh

Two years ago, I visited Pittsburgh and thanks to my first cousin who was willing to drive my husband and me around the North Side of Pittsburgh (where we also visited our mothers' childhood home), we visited a couple of cemeteries, including Union Dale Cemetery.

All of my maternal grandmother's grandparents are buried there. (See a family tree at Visiting Pittsburgh's Uniondale Cemetery.)

I took lots of photos and here is one of the Hunter family plot.

There are eight burials in the plot:
