The Dan Cemetery – Deposit, New York

This little cemetery is located on Kelsey Road in/near the little community of Danville, NY but it has a Deposit, New York address. It lies about 200 yards north of the famous Red Barn, on the same side of the road. A perfect description would be – “a quaint little cemetery that exudes peace and tranquility”. Completely shrouded under maple, oak and pine trees, the darkened stones date back to the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. Time has taken its toll on these 20 some stones; a few have faded completely beyond identification. The plots that have only a bluestone or fieldstone marker were not photographed. All the names that could be read are posted with its corresponding gravestone in the gallery….
