Lists referred to are:
"Still More Epitaphs in Saratoga County, NY: Wilton, Saratoga, Northumberland and Moreau. State of New York, Anno Domini, 1880" Transcribed by C.E. Durkee Vol. 4, pages 415-431 Stone Inscriptions copied Nov. 1, 1877 by Fred Crane - list dated January 25, 1878. Photocopies supplied by Lynn Calvin, coordinator of this website.
Also "Brownville Cemetery - Near the John Murphy Farm, Town of Northumberland County of Saratoga" typed by HCR Sep.1943; supplied by Georgia Ball, Northumberland Town Historian.

NOTE: Stones were physically checked by following the Durkee list as the cemetery was walked. Thirty-four stones on that list were not found of 126. Four stones were found that were not on either list. During the physical verification, it was discovered that the HCR list had names on it of people who were not actually buried but that had been named on other stones as spouses or parents of. The HCR list did contain sixteen stones of later burials than the Durkee list. This makes the total number of stones found to be 112 as of Nov. 30, 2002.

To access Brownville Cemetery, there is a 285' walkway. The main cemetery area is 116' x 87'. There is a smaller area of stones diagonally attached to the main area which is 82' x 50'. Verification of stones, revamping of the walkway and clean up of the Brownville Cemetery was done by scouts of Troop 9 South Glens Falls as part of the Eagle Project of Cody Wilson.
