The OES visited Williams Family Cemetery on November 27, 2001. This cemetery was VERY hard to spot, even more so during the summer months. Williams Family Cemetery is in the middle of a clump of trees in a field, right next to US Route 23, on the site of the old Williams farm. When we arrived, we were shocked to find one of the tombs busted open, but we did not see any bones or remains inside. There was litter scattered about the ground, probably from people throwing trash out of their window while driving up Route 23. The oldest tombstone we could read dated to 1841, so the cemetery was likely founded around that time. The largest gravestone in the cemetery was made of granite and carried the family name, Williams. This was probably the most recent marker in the cemetery. Many of the older markers were broken and had fallen over. Williams Family Cemetery could definitely use some restoration work before it is forgotten forever.
