STEPHENTOWN CENTER BAPTIST CEMETERY (also known as Stephentown Cemetery)

We now have the complete transcription of the Stephentown Cemetery also known as the Stephentown Baptist Cemetery. The list is in alphabetical order and there are epitaphs when they were available. There are many pictures below the list and then a list of epitaphs as found in "Epitaphs from the Only Stephentown On Earth" by Elizabeth McClave.

Thank you to Bill Zimmerman from the Stephentown Historical Society for getting the information to me for the site.

This cemetery is on Cemetery Hill Road, .2 miles up from Route 22. Driveway goes through the stone wall and there is a space to turn a car at the far side.

As of 1985, there were approximately 683 stones, however the cemetery is still in use. The cemetery has been used since 1782. It was in July of 1985 that the original survey of the cemetery was done, and it is from that survey that the following information came from.

There are some of the grave stones that need resetting, a few are broken. this cemetery has the only "table" tombstone in town, that belonging to Asa Douglas.

At the top of the hill is the old, original cemetery, of the Gardner family. It is approached by climbing or at the far back of the cemetery there is a trace which can be driven with a car. - Written by Elizabeth McClave, who did the survey.

The following comes from the New England Genealogical Society:


"The town of Stephentown, Rensselaer Co., NY, was formed March 29, 1784 from Rensselaerswyck, and was named in honor of Stephen Van Rensselaer. It is situated in the southeastern corner of the county, and is bounded on the east by the town of Hancock, in Berkshire Co., Mass. The settlement of the territory now comprised in Stephentown began about 1765; the early settlers coming from Connecticut and Rhode Island. On the hill back of Stephentown Village is the Baptist cemetery, one of the oldest in the town, which was probably set apart as a burial ground about the time the organization of the Baptist Church, that is, about 1795 or 1796. In this cemetery many of the early inhabitants of the town are buried." (This goes on to list the burials, all of which are listed below)
