St Patrick's Cemetery, Rockaway NJ

Here lie the Irish and AustroHungarian miners of the Hibernia mines, ca 1860-1910, in Rockaway NJ. A 1975 inventory estimated only 22 stones were still legible. Kudos to the Historical Society and Boy Scouts of Rockaway for making sure the cemetery doesn't disappear into the woods of the NJ Wildcat Ridge Wildlife Management Area. (Height, 800ft)
