The graveyard comes as a surprise, a small parcel of land nestled against a sand dune. The scattered stones belong to Goodrich, Myers, Read, Maynard, Hinds and Cooper.

In the Jefferson County Genealogical Room of Flower Memorial Library, this is listed as the Cooper Cemetery, Pine Plains, Wilna. But those on Fort Drum refer to it simply as the Alexandria Road Cemetery.

What looks like a willow tree is engraved on many of the monuments. The one for William E. Cooper bears the inscription "My soul is filled with love," and "Meet me in Heaven." He was 13.

Except for the Myers's, husband and wife, no one in this cemetery seems to be related. Were they interrelated? Neighbors? Where did these people live?

The closest settlement on the old maps is Reedville. What happened here that no one was interred after 1866?
