New Horton Cemetery - behind the little red schoolhouse

Route 915, Albert County

 

              

 

A very difficult cemetery to find. We had no luck finding this cemetery in the summer due to the thickness of the brushes. We decided to go look for it in the spring before the leaves came out and lucked out with good directions. Unfortunately it's quite a mess and hardly any stones to be found. I walked what I assumed to be the perimeter of the cemetery following the metal posts and found only four markers.
