Plank Family 
Cemetery

From, Volume #2, Cemetery Records of Old Burying Grounds in the Town of Catskill 1946-1969. Recorded March 1965 by Dorothy and Walter Smith. Retyped by Celeste MacCormack.


The cemetery on the Vedder Mt. Road. About mid-way from each end. On the Old Brant property, known as Shetland Farm. It is about 1/2 mile east of house away down in the valley. On a knoll of ground just south of where an old hay barn once stood. Burying ground in bad condition, stones most all down and broken. Covered with brush. Most of these name were taken down years ago and I obtained them from the Bronk House files. Property now belongs to W. H. Hughes.
