This cemetery is documented in a book called, "Burying Grounds of Sharon, Connecticut, Amenia and North East, New York", by L. Van Alstyne and published in 1903...

"This is a small enclosure on the hillside above the Steel Works on the old road half way between South Amenia and Wassaic Here was buried in 1746 Mr Richard Sackett the earliest settler of Amenia The stone that marked the spot has long since disappeared The whole place is shamefully neglected."

    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.
