Inscriptions from stones in the old part of the cemetery, near the road, in the village of Williamstown, Oswego Co., NY, by Mrs. Charles Edward Merritt, DAR.

Old part of Fairview - in Williamstown
Old part of Fairview - in Williamstown.  This is the part along the road and shows where the stones are that 
you have on your listing.  I'm totally confused as to what the actual name is  ..if it is
indeed part of Fairview or if it is just referred to as Williamstown Cemetery.
