The first burial in the Alt/Wein Cemetery was on Nov 15 1842, Louisa, dau of Alonzo and Maria Denison. The people buried in this cemetery are pioneer settlers of Penn Twp. Based on the stones in the cemetery, thirty were buried before the end of the Civil War, fourteen before the end of the century and three at the beginning of the 20th Century. No more burials were allowed after 1920. Two Civil War Veterans are buried there. On Apr 3 1922, the trustees of Penn Twp accepted a quit claim deed from the Alts for the cemetery and agreed to maintain it.
The cemetery is east of a gravel road. Currently one must access the cemetery through a cow pasture. Access can only be made with permission of the pasture owner who lives on a farm on the other side of the road.
