This cemetery is just north of Fairmount Park in Wheatfield NY. Driving north on Nash Road, just north of Stieng Road on the west side of the road.
I can not find any history on this cemetery. Considering the size of this cemetery, there may be many unmarked graves. There is no cemetery sign -- the markers are scattered throughout the Fairmount Park and individually roped off.
On maps it shows one large cemetery named Fairmount Cemetery and another smaller cemetery southwest of this one with no name. It appears this one time cemetery has been made into a park, with many of the burials possibly moved. Does anyone have history of this burial ground? (Ed. note)
I walked and read all existing and legible stones and markers in this cemetery on May 11, 2011.
