Newspaper Story on New Cemeteries, 1885
THE LOCAL NEWS (Homestead, PA), Saturday, January 3, 1885
AND ST. THOMAS
Located at Copeland Station, P.R.R., West Braddock, are most convenient and beautifully laid out grounds; all accommodation trains stop; board walk from station to cemetery; so near that carriages are unnecessary;
B & O, and P. McK. & Y. stations only one-fourth mile distant; price of lots and terms are reasonable; no more desirable burial places in this locality. Monongahela is a Protestant cemetery; St. Joseph, German [Catholic], and St. Thomas, English Catholic.
For further information inquire of H. Williams, Undertaker, Homestead.
