History:

The settlement of Youngwomanstown, Clinton County, dates back to the early 19th century.   Here a church and school-house (one building) was erected in 1827, with Presbyterian services apparently conducted under the direction of the Northumberland Presbytery, who oversaw the construction of the building. The village name was changed to North Point when the railroad established a stop there; still later, it became known as North Bend.  A cemetery connected with the Presbyterian church was established at an early day.  While a number of the graves were moved to the North Bend Cemetery in October of 1900, many remain.  Those with surviving headstones are recorded, and compared with the lists of Lola Wallace and Vito Janerella, both deceased.
