Cemetery notes and/or description:

This cemetery sits on a hill up in back of the Zion United Church of Christ, on Taborton Road (County Rt. 42), just across the road from Little Bowman Pond, in Taborton, NY.

Note: For the graves I've added to this cemetery the plot locations are my best estimates, with the rows running north-south parallel to the roadway into the cemetery - row 1 being closest to the roadway, and the highest numbered row being back against the woods bordering the west side of the Cemetery. Grave numbers start at the south end of the row - at the bottom of the hill - and run north (up hill). Until recently, the cemetery was divided into 2 sections - the older, front section, and the newer back section - which were separated by an old stone wall that ran east - west, the east end of which was located between the Meyers family and Connole family plots. This wall extended westward, to the woods.

During the summer of 2013, the Church, which owns the cemetery, began an ambitious project to prepare the newer back portion of the cemetery for more burials. At the same time, they began working on restoring and resetting many of the broken head stones in the front section of the cemetery, the results of which are amazing. During this process, a few gravestones, which had somehow apparently become erroneously relocated, have been moved back to their original locations. Also, some trees and bushes, as well as the old stone walls that ran east-west through the center of the cemetery, separating the front and back sections of the cemetery, and another one that ran up along the left side of the roadway in the back section, have been removed, so the cemetery doesn't look quite the same as it used to. At the time of this writing, the Church's project continues.
