Sperry Hollow Cemetery is also known as Lamphere Cemetery and is an old abandoned cemetery in the Town of Maryland, Otsego County, with graves from early to mid 1800s

Directions to the cemetery are from the town historian in 2000. my addition to the directions are in { } from when I tried to locate the cemetery in 2017 to visit the graves of my 3x great grandparents.

It is located on Sperry Hollow Road, left off of Elk Creek Road, west of corner of Sperry Hollow road and Norton road. After turning onto the road, you go to the first house on the left. {Do not confuse this with the first house on the left on Norton road. The "first house on the left" cannot be seen from Sperry Hollow Road. The driveway is a long road up hill on the left just after the intersection of Sperry Hollow Road and Norton Road} Pull in driveway, facing barn. To the left {of the barn} is a path approximately 6 ft. wide that is mowed by the Town. The cemetery will be on your right at the end of the path

{I was told by the town historian, Robert Parmerter, that I was in the correct location but I could not find the cemetery. He tried to find it the next day and also failed to locate the cemetery. He promised he would continue to try to locate the cemetery so the next time I am in Otsego County he will know where it is located}

Sperry Hollow Cemetery survey was done by Dorothy Parmerter, Town Historian 2000

In 2000, there were other burials not included in the survey because the stones were illegible.

All the memorials for this cemetery were created from her survey. I have updated those I could with additional information from my family records, census records, and additional records as found
