Orange Historical Society

There doesn't appear to be a historical society in Orange.

Orange Vital Statistics

    1790 Orange County

Census reporting ends with the 1820 census. There were over 50 separate items of data gathered in the 1830 census. That fact and that names are not in alphabetical order make it impractical to report later years.

Peake Cemetery

Since the cemetery is abandoned and to comply with the landowner wishes, any reference to the location has been removed.

The land owner states: There isn't anything there that anyone's been able to find and the town cemetery commission has looked before, with my permission. There is nothing there.
It's just a location on the map that says that somewhere long ago someone was buried but we can't find even stones.
