From Monaca drive south on Rte 51 to Monaca Road. Take Monaca Road
up the hill turning onto Van Kirk Road and go to the end, about
2/10's of a mile. Walking through private property, follow the woodline
until you see the cemetery on its edge.
This cemetery is associated with Van Kirk Lutheran Church. The
cemetery is now overgrown and neglected. The only way through
it is to follow the deer trails. The cemetery is small and hilly.
Some of the area is steep with cliffs. There are only 16 stones
(4 are veteran's markers with flags). Most of the stones are damaged.
I walked and read this cemetery on Jul 18, 2008. It includes
all existing and legible stones or markers.
