The Uniontown Cemetery has been continuously used by the families who have lived around Lotus for the past 157 years. There are many family plots of prominent County residents, such as Ray Lawyer and the Bacchi, Bassi, Grother, Mainwaring and Lohry Families.
The year of the first known burial was in 1852.The Uniontown Cemetery is a little less than an acre and has a total of 352 recorded plots. There are family plots with surviving members who may request burial in the future. The cemetery is no longer active except for pre-needs.
