Total records = 43.
From Oneonta, take Hwy 75 N turning right on County Road 39. Go past Hood's Crossing. The cemetery is located approximately .5 miles past the Union Hill Church on the left. Cemetery is not visible from the road and is located on private property.
This cemetery has two distinct parts. The first or lower part of the cemetery has the most readable gravestones. The second part is up a slight incline to the right about 700 feet. The owner of the property where the cemetery is located has mowed a trail to make walking from one area to another easier.
The second or upper part has about forty graves scattered over an acre or more of land, with just five markers having readable names. One of these markers (Harvey L. Hays) seems to have been placed in the cemetery about twenty or more years ago. All the rest have limestone rocks, slabs, or concrete as markers.
The information came from the actual tombstones when I walked and read the cemetery in October 2000. They are not accepting new burials. Markers could not be found for those individuals which have an asterisk * after their entry.- Bruce Jordan
