- This cemetery was transcribed by Hugh McLellan on July 10, 1938.
- These records are part of what is known as the McLellan Cemetery Records. Beginning in 1933, Hugh McLellan, his son, Charles Woodbury “Woody” McLellan, and his daughter-in-law, Hulda (Bredenburg) McLellan traveled to various cemeteries throughout Clinton County copying the inscriptions from cemetery stones. Upon his death, these records were to have been donated to Cornell University. However, Dr. Allan Everest of SUNY Plattsburgh convinced the McLellan family to keep the records locally, and they were eventually donated to SUNY Plattsburgh. Complete sets of these records are also available at the Plattsburgh Public Library, the Clinton County Historian's office in Plattsburgh, and the Northern New York American-Canadian Genealogical Society in Keeseville, New York. Each Town Historian has a copy of their segment as well.
- It was typed by Joyce M. Ranieri in September 2005. McLellan used a / to
represent a line break. That formatting has been retained in this
- 2 Stones, 2 Persons
- Many thanks to Arnold "Red" Jubert, Plattsburgh Town Historian, for his assistance in making these records available online.
