St. James Protestant Episcopal Church Cemetery is a very small cemetery located on the side and back of the church which was built in 1839. Not sure of how many people are buried there but only a couple of flat tombstones remain. The church is located at 100 Dock Street, Schuylkill Haven, PA 17972.

St. James Protestant Episcopal Church was charted July 4th, 1839. Among the charter members were Robert C. Hill, Lebbeus Chapman, William B. Potts, Winfield S. Chapman, John Hudson, Alexander A. Clarkson, John Guertler, Absalom Reifsnyder, John Stanton, Richard Stanton, Gideon Bast and Charles M. Hill. A church was consecrated in the spring of 1814, built of rough native stone. William Richardson presented the lot. The corner stone was laid in 1839. Robert C. Hill was the first Sunday-school superintendent; services were held in Moses Reed's tailoring establishment on Canal street. The first minister was Rev. Mr. Buell, succeeded in 1842 by Rev. George C. Drake, who remained about ten years. ("HISTORY OF SCHUYLKILL COUNTY, PA with Illustrations and Biographical Sketches of Some of Its Prominent Men and Pioneers. New York: W. W.
