From the Searsburg Road (Co Rt 1) turn south on the Burr Road and go .15 miles. The cemetery is on the right in the woods approx. 50-60 yards. I was there in April 1998 and we only found three stones. The old records had said that it was believed that there were “Propers” buried there. There was evidence of many more graves and maybe the stones were moved to the Jones Cem which is near.
 

SIX-NATIONS CEMETERY  (PINE CREEK RD CEM)....................ORANGE
On the south side of Kelly Hill Rd just off Co Rt 22.
 

STRADER CEMETERY.......................................................................HECTOR
On the north side of Covert Road. From the Logan Road (Co Rt 4) go up the Covert Road to the first driveway on the right (across from the old one room school). That driveway goes to a moble home and there is a garage or small barn next to that. The cemetery is directly north of that building. It is in the brush and woods just out of sight of that building. I visited this on Nov 7, 1996 and found that most of the stones have eroded away.
 

SUGAR HILL CEM (NEW)..................................................................ORANGE
On northwest corner of Locust Lane and Co Rt 21.
 

SUGAR HILL CEM (OLD)..................................................................ORANGE
On the east side of Evergreen Hill Rd .2 miles from Sugar Hill Raod. Look for a driveway going up a hill. Cemetery is about 180 paces up the hill and not visible from the main road. Maintained but not being used. Many graves are not marked.
 

SWAN HILL ROAD..............................................................................CATHARINE
This cemetery is difficult to find and is on a seasonal use road. It is not practical for a stranger to this are to go to it. From Alpine go out Swan Hill Road .7 miles. This will be a short distance past a “Connecticut Hill Management” sign. There is a parking area on the right side of the road. Park there and walk back across the road to the northwest side. You have to walk up a steep hill going back toward Alpine (Parallel to the Road) for about 150 yards. At that point the cemetery is to your right on up the hill a short distance. There are two groups of stone and there is evidence of graves with no markers. Visited on 9-24-1996.
 

SWITZER CEMETERY.........................................................................ORANGE
Gone now - no records exist. Suppose to have been near the corner of Switzer Hill Road and Fish Hill Road.
 

TOWNSEND CEMETERY....................................................................DIX
On the east side of Townsend Road (north of Townsend) .3 miles from Co Rt 16. Mowed but not trimmed.
 

TYRONE UNION CEMETERY............................................................TYRONE
Off Cemetery Road southwest of Tyrone Villiage. Road is .4 miles west of the middle of the villiage.
 

VALOIS CEMETERY / SENECA UNION CEMETERY....................HECTOR
Seneca Union is the correct name but everyone has always called this the Valois Cemetery. On the east side of State Rt 414 just north of Valois.
 

VANDORN FARM PLOT.....................................................................HECTOR
Cemetery no longer exists. See the records.
 

VANLONE HILL CEM.........................................................................CATHARINE
Very difficult to find. The roads are seasonal use roads and not in good shape. Starting in Alpine go out Swan Hill Rd to the end and turn left, go only a short distance and take the first right (Todd Rd), follow that road out until there is a road going to the west (School House Road). Follow that road until you see a building foundation on the left. That is the old school house. Turn around and go back a short distance to a culvert in the road - at the present there are posts beside the road by the culvert. Go into the woods to the right - south - and find an old abandoned road. Follow that down the hill until it turns sharply to the right. The cemetery is in the tall old pine trees if you walk ahead and don’t turn right. I do not think it practical for a stranger to go to this cemetery without some local person with them.
 

WARDEN CEMETERY  (WARREN CEM).........................................ORANGE
On the southeast side of Co Rt 16 .2 miles southwest of Sexton Hollow Rd. About 100 yards off the road in a hedgerow, look for a tall monument. Overgrown but accessible.
 

WAYNE BAPTIST CHURCH CEM......................................................TYRONE
On the north side of Rt 230 just east of the middle of the village.
 

WESTON CEMETERY  (FRANK WOOD FARM)  (HEALD CEM).......TYRONE
Go west out of Weston on Co Rt 23. Just before the canan between Lake Lamoka and Lake Waneta is a parking area. If you park in that area walk out of the parking area toward the large house on the hill.Just out of the parking area is a driveway going thru brush, walk out that and you will be in an open field. Across the field is a large grove of trees. That is the cemetery, stones can be seen if the leaves are off the brush. Part of it has been cleared of brush but the rest of it is very difficult to get thru.
