Cemetery notes and/or description:


The Burgess Farm Cemetery is located on the old John Burgess farm site (settled about 1795) in Herkimer County, near the Otsego county line on what is now McGinnis (McGintis?) Road.
The cemetery was referred to as the Old Neighborhood Cemetery by the Fenton family after they purchased the property about 1870. And, indeed it was a neighborhood cemetery; the neighborhood consisting of mostly family members of the Burgess/Mowry families living (some in Herkimer and some across the street in Otsego County)in the area of the original farm settled by Revolutionary War veteran John Burgess and his wife Urana Mowry of Rhode Island.
The old cemetery is now in a sad state with many stones down and damaged and the fenced off plots overgrown with trees and brush.
