Leeds Village Cemetery

From, Volume #1, Cemetery Records of Old Burying Grounds in the Town of Catskill 1946-1962. Recorded by Dorothy and Walter Smith. Retyped by Celeste MacCormack.


This cemetery is in very poor condition, with very few stones left standing in the year 2000. As you come from Route 23A on Green Lake Road in the Village of Leeds, in the Town of Catskill, you will find the cemetery located behind the houses on the left about 500 yards from Route 23A. This large, and very historic cemetery is not well maintained, with grass often growing to knee level. Many stones have fallen and are broken.
