Belsano Methodist Cemetery

LOCATION:
3876 Benjamin Franklin Highway (Rt. 422
Belsano, PA 15922
This cemetery is located in the village of Belsano, Blacklick Township, Cambria County.  It is on the north side of Rt 422 located beside and behind the United Methodist Church.
It dates from the mid-1800's and is still in use.  For a short period the cemetery was not used due to lack of ground, but new property was acquired and burials resumed.   The older section, near church, has poorly aligned rows, which were assigned rows on best judgement.  Row 7 disappears into rows 6 and 8, and has only 9 graves assigned.  Several other rows are "short rows with only a few headstone.  Rows were recorded from left to right, starting at the southeast corner (nearest the church).  The first three rows are between the church parking lot and the road.  This area is where the previous church was located.
