Cemetery notes and/or description:
Aka. Altemose's Church, Butts/Butz Run. Located south of Sciota on the edge of the Blue Mountain Golf Course. From Sciota, drive south toward Saylorsburg. About 6/10 of a mile past the Township School, turn left in the Golf Course entrance road. The cemetery is on the left about 1/10 of a mile. The earliest tombstone here is that of Schalotta Altemus, who died in 1806, wife of Nicholas. The last burial took place in 1914. Families buried here are Altemus, Barrier, Fleyt, Gower, Lessig, Meixell, Remel, Sandt, Shafer, and Werkheiser. This burial ground is well maintained even though not in use for many years. There was a church here at one time but it has been gone for many years. (Extracted from page 8 of "Guide to Cemeteries and Burial Grounds of Monroe County, Pennsylvania", compiled by Dale E. Berger, January, 1995, First Edition)
