Redford Hillside Graveyard

Saranac, Clinton County, New York
NOTES: The following information is from the book, The Saranac Valley, Volume One: The Pioneers by Sarah Baker, page 40. She wrote: "The actors of this once busy scene now rest on a lonely hill side overlooking the valley. Their crumbled headstones match the fallen ruins of the factory town these people once created. From the broken pieces, a few names and dates are still discernable, such as the following:"
