Skiff Family Cemetery


The Skiff Cemetery is located off Wright Road, between Ford Hill Road and State Route 23A, in South Jewett, Town of Jewett. It sits on a high knoll and is not visible from the road below. Access is by way of a steep, old logging road. Follow the path and bear to the right each time it forks. This cemetery is surrounded by a stone wall and contains many uninscribed fieldstones. Most of the stones are damaged and hard to read. These inscriptions were transcribed by Susan Neugebauer, the Jewett Town Historian, and Patricia Morrow, the Windham Town Historian, on September 16, 2000.  Photos courtesy of Patricia Morrow.
