ST. CLAIR
CEMETERY
Dormont, Pennsylvania
ST. CLAIR CEMETERY
In this forgotten stretch of hallowed ground lies the remains of war heroes & pioneers, consorts
& relicts of gilded-age industrialists and visionaries that claimed civilization from wilderness and
staked their claims with their good names.  A walk through the cemetery turns up many familiar
names such as McNeilly, McCully, Beadling, Carnahan, Espy and Beltzhoover. These were
early residents whose names have been immortalized as streets and neighborhoods. It also turns
up a sad fact of life for early settlers of our area - infant mortality: 30 to 40 percent of those
buried here are children.  However, it is the array of war veterans that distinguishes this cemetery
from others alike.  Veterans from the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, Civil War, Spanish
Civil War, WWI, WWII, Korean Conflict, all share ground in this spit of land that
has fallen victim to time, lost memories and sadly, vandalism.
SACRED
TO THE
MEMORY OF
CLARISSA SYLVESTER
departed this life
Nov. 1st A.D. 1835
Aged 17 years
Her rest is sweet in earth cold
She mingles dust with dust
On Jesus breast, she leans her
head  In firm, unshaken trust
Quickly she'll burst the
bolted tomb,And rise in
full, unfadeing bloom.
