Cemetery notes and/or description:
next to museum at the Westmoreland Sanctuary, Chestnut Ridge Rd.. Very few remaining markers, most of these unreadable.

Sign on entrance: A Neighborhood Burying Ground 1824-1915

"In this rock-fence enclosed plot before you are laid to rest some forty residents of Shoemaker Road (the present Chestnut Ridge Road). Primarily they were hand-crafters, making those parts of shoes supplied them by jobbers from New York City. With this activity they combined a type of subsistence farming hard to come by on this rocky land.

Dates on the headstones range from 1824 to 1915. Names represented are Adams, Bailey, Brundage, Greene, Moore, Reynolds, Simonson, Daniels, Sands, and Zar or Zarr, of which six survive in the current telephone directory."
