LANTERMAN-MOHERMAN CEMETERY

This is a small family cemetery that was established 1831 located at the five corners where Meridian Road and Mahoning Avenue intersect in Austintown, Mahoning County, Ohio. The cemetery is nearly a paragon measuring approximately 27 paces by 28 paces. An Eagle Scout Project was completed on July 3, 1993, by Scouts Shaun and Richard Wray, wherein the cemetery was cleaned and repaired. In addition, the Wrays caused a brass and wood structure to be place in front of the cemetery. The names of those buried in the cemetery were placed on small brass plaques. These young men should be commended for their individual effort. There is at least one newspaper article around July 3, 1993, which addresses the efforts of the Wrays and this cemetery. Walking up the steps into the cemetery, you will see that the grave sites are separated to the left and to the right.
