This cemetery is located in the Town of Halcott on Ely Ridge Road at the intersection of Judd Hill Road.  The cemetery is in poor condition with high grass and many trees growing within its boarders. It is surrounded by a stone wall. There are at least 30 graves marked by fieldstones for headstones and footstones. Many appear to be young children. This is a sizable cemetery.
