Angus Cemetery: Notes

Angus cemetery The Angus family were the original owners of hundreds of acres in this immediate vicinity. The cobblestone house near where the Angus Road intersects with Route 14 was theirs and so was the land on which the cemetery now lies. It is a family plot once surrounded by a fence of which only the stone gateposts remain.

The cemetery is barely visible from the highway and can only be reached from a private driveway; it is in a clump of trees and carpeted with myrtle. Some of the stones have fallen but all are still legible.

Nearly all the earlier lists call this cemetery by the name of the Angus family, though occasionally it is referred to as being on the Newlander farm.
