This cemetery is located in the Town of Coxsackie, about one quarter of a mile from the junction of Route 26 and Lime Kiln Rd, on the private property of the Boehm Family. Situated on the hillock behind the pond it is in poor condition. There are numerous fieldstones, some with inscriptions on them.
