Abandoned Waterford Cemetery

Contributed by Herb Kinney


According to Herb Kinney, there was a cemetery at 2nd and West Street in Waterford which became abandoned sometime after about 1865. Stones from this cemetery were moved to a commemorative site in the Waterford Cemetery on the southwestern side about 1930 or before. A DAR plaque dated 1930 dedicates the site:
