Cat Ridge Cemetery
North Salem, Westchester County, New York

Contributed by Jeanne Kornhaas, Oct 12, 2001 [jpkornhaas@snet.net].
Total records = 8.

Located on Cat Ridge Rd, again, no street #. You get there by turning onto Mills Rd and taking the 2nd left, Cat Ridge Rd, just past the horse farm. Follow Cat Ridge Rd up the hill and the burial ground is located on the right hand side. There are approx 20 graves in this site.

This burial ground, situated on private property, was once associated with a nearby Baptist Church. Timothy Van Scoy erected the first meeting house nearby circa 1978. (this is the date on the sign, but I believe it's a mistake)

This is a transcription from records I made when I walked this cemetery in summer of 2001. They are very, very old and some of them are weather-worn and illegible. This reading contains interments from 1803 to 1889, and includes all legible headstones.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
