Article from the online historical journal Clio about various minor historical connections to Monongahela Cemetery of North Braddock, including the novel Out of This Furnace, which traces the lives of three generations of Slovak immigrants who lived in Braddock, PA.   A recurring religious symbol in this cemetery is the triple cross of the Eastern-rite churches.   Captain Bill Jones, Andrew Carnegie’s first steel-master, who died during a furnace accident in 1889, is interred here in an imposing mausoleum.
