In August 2011, I visited the Balmat Cemetery, in Balmat NY. This cemetery is located on a rise in the woods near the intersection of Hwy 812 and and CR24/37. To reach it, turn north on CR24/37 off of Hwy 812. Park by the old commercial building on the right. Walk behind the building and towards the house next door along the tree line at the back. A small path will be visible back into the woods. Following this path will lead to the cemetery in the woods (path angles back towards Hwy 812).
GPS Location: Latitude: 44.24695, Longitude: -75.39532
Cemetery is no longer in use, but is still fairly well maintained despite its remote location.
The inventory below consists of the stones I was able to find and photograph. When a picture is available, the name of the person will be 'clickable' to bring up the picture. All comments can be directed to Anne M. Cady
