HOWELLS CEMETERY

Howells Cemetery, New Vernon Rd., Howells, Orange Co., NY. This cemetery is about a half acre, well maintained and easy to walk.

Photographed September 9, October 4, & Dec. 1, 2001

This is the front of the cemetery, on the bank that faces New Vernon Rd. The lower left stone is for HOYT, along side of the WHEAT family. Other stones here are AXFORD, BELL, and Caroline, wife of George A. STUBBS. Many are not legible.

View, center of cemetery The large stone, on the left is the MAPES head stone which is in front of Winfield Harvey Mapes and Myrta REED Mapes. The largest stone on the right is the BENJAMIN - MAPES familys' stone. In the rear the small building looks like a tool/maintenance shed, in good repair. There are two entrances to this cemetery on New Vernon Road. When you enter the first entrance, coming from "downtown" Howells, you will see an old water pump on your right.
