This project is for those buried in Trinity Episcopal Churchyard, Pottsville, Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania.

In 1850 the churchyard was behind Trinity Episcopal Church. When additions were added on to the church, the parish hall addition went over the top of the churchyard, the parish hall was added in 1905. According to a stone marker in the church some are buried in the organ room and also headstones in the church annex. Gravestone photos are not available.

Burials in the churchyard began in 1830 until 1848. As early as 21 July 1847 Rev. William Cooley purchased the track of land which became Trinity Episcopal Church's Mt. Laurel Cemetery, now Charles Baber Cemetery. The first burials there were 25 October 1848.
