Moriah, Essex County, New York
DIRECTIONS: This small family cemetery is located on the old Walton farm just north of Port Henry on the Westport Road.
- This transcription was compiled by Stephen Cywin who wrote the following:
"The cemetery was abandoned after 1868 and was vandalized around 1970. Starting about 18 months ago, several of my cousins and I began the process of bringing the title back into the family, with the intention of restoration. We now have title within the family. Fortunately we also were able to locate a transcript from about 1932, which is the most complete we know of. We appear to still have one unidentified grave. I have also been able to figure out the relationships of everyone on the 1932 transcript and have created a chart displaying those relationships, including individuals who are not buried in the cemetery but need to be included to illustrate the connections. This last piece took a great deal of research to complete."
- Many of the stones are missing due to the vandalism, and the rest are in poor repair
