Single Headstones

 Route 92,  going  North to Lenox Corners ,  Susquehanna Co., Pa
This is a single stone set just off the road with a small rail around it.

Two graves in a pasture just up and across the road from the South Auburn Cemetery. A few years ago, a local Boy Scout cleaned up the site as an Eagle Scout project and erected a fence made of steel pipe around it to keep cows out. The graves are:
