Presbyterian Cemetery
Town of Stillwater

As transcribed by Cornelius Emerson Durkee and listed under Stillwater in Volume 2, pages 571 – 597 of 
Durkee's Epitaphs of Saratoga County, New York.

“The Presbyterian Cemetery is on the east slope of a ridge west of the River Road and Canal, a short 
distance north of the village of Stillwater.  But few interments are made here now, and a number of removals 
have been made to the Union Cemetery already.  The inscriptions were copied Sep.11, 1877 by 
Edw'd D. Harris & C.E. Durkee.” (pg 597)
