{GPS Data for the turn off point of the main road is N 39.83556 / W 90.64916}
(Excerpts from Pike County Cemetery Book Volume 3)
Located in the N E Section 5 Chambersburg Township off County Rd 376.
Entrance is via a partially gravel roadway with a VERY steep climb as it passes thru a farm pasture.
Worth the climb, the cemetery is positioned at the top of a very high and
narrow ridge of the Mihama Kleinlein farm North East of Chambersburg;
providing a beautiful view of the bottom prairie below.
This cemetery contains about 2 acres, is partially maintained and occasionally still used.
The burials here date from 1842 to the present.
