Joiner Family Cemetery

Moriah, Essex County, New York
DIRECTIONS: This cemetery "is located on the old back road from Moriah Center headed south towards Crown Point, N.Y. Almost at the intersection of So. Moriah Road and the previous (Joiner Road). The cemetery sits on the left going south, behind a house on a knoll between the first barn that held the first church meeting... In 2011, we visited the site and found no barn, we were told it burned a few years ago--very little cemetery was visible ... it is all overgrown.)" --author unknown
