Nisbet Family Cemetery

After several attempts at locating the Nisbet Family Cemetery we were finally successful. This cemetery is located in the woods off the abandoned section of Kotary Road in the Town of Western. In the mid to late 1800's this road ran from South Hill Road in the town of Western towards the town of Floyd.

Several of the stones were lying on the ground but with the exception of one stone all were intact and in very good condition. There are four additions to the DAR listing done in January 1935 and one of the stones on that listing was not found. This cemetery was copied by Kathleen Last and Virginia Ackerman on December 7, 1999.
