West Church Cemetery
Warren County, New York

Lat: 43° 39' 13"N, Lon: 73° 50' 01"W

Contributed by Thomas Dunne, Oct 14, 2003, updated Aug 05, 2004 [thmsdunne9@aol.com]. Total records = 131.

To reach the West Church cemetery take Knapp Hill Road out of Chestertown, west, for about 2mi. Where it ends by hitting Friends Lake Road, you will see the cemetery across the street in front of you.

The West Church Cemetery is not in Chestertown, but is in the town of Chester. Or if you take Rt. 8 west from Chestertown, and turn left on Friends Lake Rd, the cemetery is on your right where Knapp Hill Rd connects in on your left.

I have not seen anything official saying this is the West Church Cemetery, but have been told that is the name of the Cemetery, and that the White Church use to stand across the street from the Cemetery and is long gone.

Many of the stones are gone forever, but the ones that are there I have digital photo's (JPG) of. I have a photo for every stone in the listing, which I am willing to send to you, or anyone who would like one at no charge. Hopefully some day I will win lotto, and be able to repair some of these old cemeteries.

I have transcribed from my readings when I visited this cemetery in the summer of 2003, which includes all existing headstone.
