Danville, Montour County, Pennsylvania

Lat: 4057'22"N, Lon: 7635'54"W

Contributed by David Z. Richards, Sr., Sep 05, 2002 [david.richards@verizon.net]. Total records = 177.

Take Rt. 11 north out of Danville towards Bloomsburg, PA. as you leave Danville, the Senior High School is on your right. At red light by the high school, turn right onto State Hospital Drive and go approximately 200 yards, Episcopal Cemetery is on your right. Old Jewish Cemetery is on west end of Episcopal Cemetery, surrounded by a galvanized cyclone fence.

This cemetery is maintained by the local FNB Bank, N.A. in trust.

This transcription is prepared from my readings when walking this cemetery in 2002. Some of the stones are in Hebrew, which I am unable to translate.
