Deyoe Family Cemetery

Deyoe Cemetery Rt. 23 A West, between Lexington and Prattsville. It is on the right, .5 mile from the Mosquito Point bridge. It is located up a very steep bank. It is maintained by the Town. The cemetery is surrounded by a stone wall, with a smaller stone wall around some graves. There was once a fence by the edge of the bank but that is mostly gone.
