This cemetery has a number of graves that are designated with a code rather than a name. In the early part of the 1900's, the remains of individuals were relocated due to flooding of the Sacandaga River for the purpose of making the resevoir. One of these coded graves is that of William Flansburgh. So far, his specific grave nas not been identified.

William was a clergyman. In around 1845, he had a religious experience, was "born again" and became a pastor. His first church was a Free Will Baptist church in the area of Day, NY. He soon became a Wesleyan Methodist Minister, serving congregations in Forestdale VT, Stony Creek NY, Corinth NY and Hadley NY, among others.

He changed denominations because of his views on slavery. He was an abolitionist. Wilbur Dayton, Jr recalled seeing a letter written from Abraham Lincoln to him as a response to a letter William had sent to the president. In it, Abe told him, "you keep preaching it from the pulpit and I'll keep preaching it from the White House." No one in the family has seen the letter since the 1930's.

His wife was Charity Rosina Johnson. She was born in 1831 in New York State. They were married Feb 28 1849 in Saratoga Co. NY. She is assumed to have died before 1875 since William was married to Sarah Ellis in 1875 New York Census.

William's NYS Death Certificate is #36345.
