Old Columbia Furnace Cemetery

Columbia Furnace Union Church Cemetery, also known as Columbia Furnace Cemetery, has three sections. The first, oldest section (aka Old Columbia Furnace Cemetery) has a stone wall around it, while the second section (aka New Columbia Furnace Cemetery) is located behind the church. Then, there is the newest section, which opened around 1995 (see map here of newest section). We will attempt to distinguish in which section each grave is located.
