I have not alphabetized the info. It's arrangement now is locational. It starts in the northwest corner of the cemetery and works eastward. There are also many graves that are unmarked. Roger Smith, August, 1997

Listings on this page are not necessarily complete and may not represent all of the stones in this cemetery. Please send additional submissions and corrections to Doug Boyer

At the entrance to the cemetery is this sign: This Cemetery has been restored by the Anonymous Arts Society, Charlotteville, NY in respect for the dead.

Most of the stones in this cemetery are of white marble and are heavily eroded. Many have epitaphs that are now illegible, but might be retrieved through rubbings. Part I is the larger cemetery located on the north side of the road. Part II is on the south side.

Thought that the Part II was usually called the Neer Cemetery.

Charles Neer, the Revolutionary soldier, served in Albany Co. Militia, Col. Robert VanRensselaer's company. There were several VanRensselaer's who had companies in the Albany Co.Militia.

Albert Dibble b. May 4, 1856 d. Jan. 26, 1920 at 63 yr, 8 mo, 22 da. is buried in the Part I section but has no marker.

Polly, wife of Wait Still Cleaveland, was originally Marabel Neer.(one of many Mary's who used Polly)

Hiram Dibble was born Nov. 23, 1810, his wife Catherine was a Cleveland.

Charles, son of Joseph & Harriet Rodman Dibble, d. Jan. 2, 1871 at 6 yr, 5 mo, 22 da.
