Civil War Burials in St. Peter’s U.C.C. Cemetery, Reinerton (Part 1 of 3)

Posted By on November 23, 2012

St. Peter’s United Church of Christ Cemetery is located in Reinerton, Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania.  To find the cemetery, travel south on Clarks Valley Road (Route 325) from the main street of Tower City which is called Grand  Avenue (Route 209).  At Deitrich Avenue, make a left turn and travel east.  The church and cemetery are located on the left side (north side) of Deitrich Road.  Three communities in the area of the Reinerton vicinity make up the “census designated area” of “Reinerton-Orwin-Muir” and the cemetery can be located using any one of them in a Google search.

The graves of twelve Civil War veterans have been located here.  Today, two of the veterans will be featured.  In the post tomorrow and Sunday, five veterans will be featured each day.
