New Morgan Boro: Property of former Graces Mines on Rt. 10, 7 miles south of Rt 568. Cemetery situated near rectangular grove of evergreen trees on slope of wooded hillside, approximately 100 yards west of Route 10. Access might soon be easier from the north bank of Carr Park lake.
Size: Stone wall measures 12' x 24'; actual site was too large to measure accurately
History: A very small trust exists with the Elverson Bank in Morgantown.
Gravemarkers and inscriptions: 6 fields tones; 1 inscribed stone
Zug Jacob d. Jan. 29, 1868 aged 82 years
Observations: Visited in April, 1998 and found much bulldozing activity extremely near the site. In fact, the activity came up to a ditch at the very north end of the burial grounds or to the top of the incline. There was too much brush and obstacles to determine the
number of rows from east to west. Most of the graves were east to west except near the top center. From the wall activity was detected over 100' on each side in 24 rows and 190' from the top of the hill downward in 41 rows.
Site address: New Morgan Borough 200 Bethlehem Dr. Morgantown
