Mount Jacob Cemetery - Glenolden, Pennsylvania
Located off of West Oak Lane. But do not exit from this side. The walls/pillars at the entrance create a poor visibility situation with approaching traffic. Leave through the back entrance, on Bartram Avenue.

When you see headstones leaning, it means this is a dangerous place to be. Keep children away. Use caution when stepping anywhere near a leaning headstone. This is the kind of place where a tragic freak accident can happen. Keep in mind that these stones are incredibly heavy. Barre gray granite weighs approximately 168 pounds per cubic foot. A child could get killed here. An adult could suffer a gruesome life changing injury. These are big stones. Be very careful.
The morning after I wrote my initial notes about my findings here, I found this news clip from an incident at the Jewish cemetery across the street:

An old-timer in the monument business told me: "There's only one reason why a tombstone leans... it's because someone did a bad job at putting the foundation in."
