Here are the Catholic Churches (not Orthodox) of Saint Clair and founding dates:

Saint Clair, St. Boniface (German) 1853
Saint Clair, St. Mary (Irish) 1864
Saint Clair, St. Casimir (Lithuanian) 1912
Saint Clair, SS. Peter and Paul (Polish) 1918
Saint Clair, Immaculate Conception (Slovak) 1905

Slavish was a term used to refer to Slovak people at the turn of the 20th century. Maybe Immaculate Conception cemetery is the one you're looking for? There's a John Motto buried there (maybe not related, but likely same ethnicity):

Call St. Claire of Assisi parish to inquire about records:

570-429-0701

St. Michael's Greek Catholic Russian Orthodox Church is another possibility - 570-429-0670

          Findagrave.com and Billion Graves definitely may not have all marked graves listed. I think Billion Graves has a smartphone app that makes uploading the gravestone photos easy, and adds GPS... more
