This small burial ground is located on land owned by Ramapo State College, just off of Route 202. The Hopper Slave Cemetery is slightly SW of the Hopper Cemetery.

I recorded this over the weekend of Feb 09, 2001.

There were a total of three stones with inscriptions on them with a total of five names. There were also several field stones that looked like grave markers with no inscriptions.

The cemetery is on the West side of Ramapo Valley Road, between River View Terrace & Halifax Road. It is not visible from the road as it is back several hundred feet.

    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.
