Oakdale Old German Cemetery
Union Avenue
Oakdale, PA

From the contributor, Victoria Hospodar Valentine:

Located back in some woods off Union Avenue in Oakdale, PA, perhaps a half
a mile from the Oakdale Cemetery, in Allegheny County, PA

I'm not sure if this cemetery has an actual name. I have only seen
one reference to it in an obit and it was called the Old German Cemetery.

These are the only readable stones, and in fact, are almost all the visable stones
in the cemetery. There were perhaps three or four others that were too badly
weathered to be read. My thought is that there are actually more graves here
than have stones and the reason for that thought is that there are many depressions
in the earth with no headstones, and the marked burial sites are quite spread out, as
though there are others missing. The whole area is overrun with plants which are
not native to our area, such as Yucca and orange lillies and those which
are generally cultivated, such as creeping myrtle, and some roses.
