Jedediah Brown Cemetery

Located on the west side of Connecticut Hill Road (the one going north & south).
Continue on to the top of the hill. At the top of the hill there is a clearing on the left side of the road. Walk out the old abandoned road keeping to the left (there is a path to the right). The cemetery is on the left side of the old road 20 - 30 paces off the road in two or three big trees. The distance out the old road is hard to judge, but it is probably no more than 200 paces.
Town of Newfield, Tompkins County, NY.
Cemetery is inactive.

This record is as complete as possible at this time.
