This is an old cemetery with several pre 1800 stones. Besides the recorded inscriptions there are more than a dozen field stones with no writing, as well as some unmarked graves. It is partly surrounded by a broken down fence and is badly overgrown with trees. It has also been called the "Graveyard at Earles' Meadows." This data was recorded by Hannah Chase and Zilla Stewart for the Queens County Historical Society in July 1975.
