Decker Cemetery
Town of Cayuta, Schuyler co., NY

List composed by William E. Fenton.
This is considered the most up-to-date list which is
kept on file in the local historical society.

"Located on the southwest corner of Rt 13 & Cronkrite Road in sight
of Alpine Junction.  The records had called this the Barnes Cem’
but that one is on Rt 224 near the county line.  All stones checked
July 1996.  Some information listed is from the old DAR Records
since some stones are no longer completely readable.  Footstones
do exist for all of those with an “X” at the end of the line."
