Cornell Cemetery, State Line Road, White Creek, NY

Recorded 03-28-04 by Wendy Baker and Marilyn Robinson

Cornell Cemetery is a private cemetery overlooking White Creek from the edge of State Line Road, and is for all intents and purposes, abandoned by the town and landowner. It is in extremely poor condition, with only a few stones left showing. Almost all those stones are tipped over, broken and moss covered. Few are legible. The cemetery is located on the NY side of State Line Rd, 2/10 of a mile in from Route 68, just west of the NY/VT border.
