Burying ground on the old Francis Salisbury farm. Situated on the west end of the Leeds Flat about 1/2 mile west of the Leeds Bridge and on the north side of Old Route 23, several hundred feet back from highway. Very, very old burying ground, Francis Salisbury built stone house here in 1705, it burned to the ground about 1931. After the Salisburyís the place was owned by the Van Deusenís then and the Tiffany family, who were the owners when the house burned. Property now owned by M. Brodersen. Burying ground quite large but in very bad condition. A lot of stones down and must be a lot missing. There might be a better record of the ones buried here but to date have not been able to locate it.
