From Stephentown Genealogy
Stephentown's Many Cemeteries Below is a transcription of some of the small cemeteries in Stephentown. The original database, which contains some 93,000 names, is housed on the Rensselaer County site. It was contributed by Don & Clare Radz, from Cemetery Sleuths. This database includes all of the towns in Rensselaer County. To help with Stephentown research, I have transcribed burials in the smaller, family owned cemeteries. Where I can, I will include some of the epitaphs as well. Stephentown/ADAMS
