Stephentown Cemetery Locations

People buried in these cemeteries are listed alphabetically by
surname in Interments in Rensselaer Co. Cemeteries.

With the exception of the Boarman-Buten-Harrison-Holcomb and Rogers Cemeteries transcribed by the late Lin Van Buren, the information on this page is from the Stephentown Historical Society's Bicentennial Album (1784-1984) which shows the cemeteries in the town at that time. Tina Ordone's Stephentown Genealogy website has a detailed list of cemetery locations in the town of Stephentown. Since the source was written 20 years ago there are very likely changes that have occured, such as street names, property owners, etc. If you have recent information about where a cemetery on this list is located, please email me, Debby Masterson, so that I may update the list. Thank you! I have linked many of the cemetereis listed below to interments at Find-A-Grave.

The oldest burying place was believed to have been laid out on the hill (now called Cemetery Hill) and named the Stephentown Baptist Cemetery in about 1795-96. Many of the first settlers are buried there such as Deacon Edward Carr and his six wives. One of his wives, it is said, died in church and bears a unique tombstone inscribed

"In memory of Mary Carr,
wife of Deacon Edward Carr,
who departed this life January 19, 1806
in the 54th year of her age.

Well to meeting she did go.
Sung praises with the saints below.
Rose in prayer as we did see
and God took her home to praise Him eternally."

Another interesting burial ground is the Dennison cemetery at North Stephentown. Several notable men were buried there. Notice their ranks: Capt. James Dennison---died 12/24/1778; Major James Jones---1/26/1778; Capt. Stephen Arnold---died 2/24/1810; Beriah Arnold---died 9/29/1802. They were all in the same war.

in 1974 several members of the Stephentown Historical Society got together and decided to research and catalog the cemeteries in this area. It took a lot of time traisping through the woods and search for the cemeteries which were overgrown with brush and trees. May stones were sunken, knocked down and broken into pieces. Others were weather worn and unreadable but this did not deter them. Eventually the group broke up and the project stopped.

In 1979 a young student joined the Historical Society and became interested in cemeteries and started on her own to try and llocate other burial places, and recataloging the ones already done. If by chance you saw a young lady with a camera in one hand and a notebook in he other, that was Jean Close, daughter of Sylvester and Vivian Close, looking for more burial places.

Susannah Carpenter, daughter of Joseph and Sarah Carpenter, died April 1776, only 6 months old. Joseph Winston died July 1786. Benjamin Greenman died March 1793. Alice Webb died 1794. There were others but no markers could be found.
