Oldest Section of Monongahela Cemetery In Poor Shape March 2010

Thanks to those who visit and especially you who leave comments. If you would like to help make Lost Monongahela better in 2011 how about sending a few pictures of people and or places in the Monongahela area? I find that posting unique pictures stimulates memories and enjoyable discussion in the comments section.
