The location of the cemetery is 500 North Fountain Street . There is believed to be more than 6,500 burials in the cemetery, most being unmarked. A sidewalk serves as a north – south dividing line in the cemetery. It is said that Catholics are buried on the south and Protestants are buried on the north. The east slope is believed to be the burial grounds of African-American persons. It has been recorded that as many as 1,200 soldiers from the Civil War were buried here.  --Source:  Wikipedia.
