Bowdish Cemetery

Town of Schuyler Falls, Clinton County, New York

This cemetery is deserted and is located on the south side of the Turner Road about one mile east of the intersection of Shingle Street and Turner Road. The first burial was in 1845 and the last in 1882.

The cemetery is quite large, with evidences of having been fenced in. The graves are widely scattered, as though many disinterments had taken place. Many stones are fallen, and some deeply buried in the sand which covers the ground, in which is a very large pine tree. The surrounding country is being reforested with pines.
