Online Project Matches Pittsburgh Street & Landmark Names To Headstones
Somebody roamed through Allegheny Cemetery and matched Pittsburgh landmarks to the headstones- adding historical background.
Learn about the family and personal histories behind the names. Possibly the project will extend to other cemeteries- although Allegheny seems to be the central fountain of names.
P.S. Names not directly linked to old Pittsburghers are often named after Civil War Generals- Butler, Thomas, Meade, Grant etc
