In the fenced northeast corner of the Watervliet Arsenal grounds, on Broadway/NY 32.

Thought to have been established between 1910-1918, though most of the deaths predate that. Some were buried on the Arsenal grounds, and some of the people came from the Gibbonsville Cemetery that had been on the southern side of the Arsenal. There's eleven marked graves, the eleventh being for eight unknown people found in 1942 during new excavation at the former Gibbonsville Cemetery.
