Search Derrick-Wheeler Cemetery (Defunct):

This cemetery was located on southeast side of NY State Route 7, just west of Center Brunswick, and was about 0.25 mile from the road. According to the town historian as well as a survey done in 1987 by the Rensselaer County Planning Board, this cemetery has been destroyed.

Cemetery notes and/or description:
Derrick Wheeler Cemetery LDS Film #0017542 Was located on southeast side of NY State Route 7, just west of Center Brunswick, and was about 0.25 mile from the road

There were also two other Derrick Cemeteries reported. One of them had all the people buried there moved to Oakwood Cemetery.

It's isn't clear whether there are any tombstones still visible at this old Derrick Wheeler family cemetery, but it appears those who were once buried here were either moved or just no longer have a visble burial site.

Although it is reported Wheeler people are or were buried here, I don't, as yet, have the specific names of Wheeler people buried here.

It is reported:
"On the 1870 map it shows a creek running just south of the Cemetery. The creek is now gone but there is a large pond/spring area on the west side of the road. The right side of the road where the cemetery once stood are several houses, also a large electric transmission line with easment has been put very close to where the cemetery used to be."

Thus, this may be a defunct cemetery.
