The Shamokin Cemetery

Welcome to Shamokin, where the population once topped 50,000, the largest man made coal bank still stands and where at one time the largest silk mill stood. Here the true melting pot of America's heritage began with many English, Irish, German, Polish, Welsh and Ukranian Families making their homes in the black dirt around the coal mines. The Cemetery officially opened in 1860, although there are a few burials listed in 1859. 155 years later, there are over 16,000 souls buried here. The history, the burials, the stories are here and beneath every stone there is a story.
