North Settlement Cemetery

North Settlement Cemetery The North Settlement Cemetery, which is not visible from the road, is located on private property on the east side of North Settlement Road (County Route 19) in the Town of Windham, Greene County, NY. It is two and three-tenths miles north of the intersection of State Route 23 and County Route 19, and less than five-tenths of a mile south of the intersection of County Routes 10 and 19. If traveling west on State Route 23, you must cross the town line from Windham into Ashland in order to reach County Route 19. Most of this road lies in the Town of Ashland, but crosses back into Windham near the cemetery.

Additional information in brackets comes from scrapbooks of newspaper clippings, death certificates and a transcription made on 20 Jul 1986, by Elwood and Patricia Morrow.
