Search Federal Hill Cemetery:

There are very few identfiable grave markers found in this cemetery. Many grave markers were broken off and gone. Some due to vandalism. Some were removed for a construction of a mining operation. Many graves are marked with just field stones now. There are lots of grave depressions in the ground. Federal Hill Cemetery is located at North End of Congress Street, about 200 feet south. Mr. Davis formerly owned the Shaw tract of land which was sold to the Central Lead company in 1893. The cemetery had approximately 50 or more graves. The Federal Lead Ccompany in 1902 and 1903 sunk a shaft No. 4 at the south end of the cemetery and, in order for the company to put in a switch, it was necessary to extend the operation into the cemetery. Orders were given to remove some of the bodies, but very few were removed. Today, there are very few grave markings remaining.
