|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
At the beginning of the 20th century, the Greenwood Cemetery, formerly known as the Sam Foley Cemetery, adjoined the Pratt Mines Cemetery which was also called the United Mine Workers Cemetery. The combined cemeteries are now known as the Fraternal Cemetery, which is owned by the Fraternal Order of Pratt City. The newer section, originally called the Pratt Mines Cemetery, includes about 13 acres. The older section, known as the Greenwood Cemetery, covers about 1.5 acres and includes about 200 graves on the southwest corner of the lot. The Greenwood Cemetery is in the thick woods to the left of the main entrance. These cemeteries include the graves of English, Scottish, and German immigrants who worked in the Pratt coal mines and other early 20th century industrial operations in this area.
