The Manning Cemetery,
839-841 Greenville Turnpike/Mountain Road,
Town of Greenville, Orange Co., New York
Please note, I found this cemetery by chance and was not prepared for the size of it nor the number of old graves. I will return and photo many more. The cemetery is not visible from the road. It is 4 tenths of a mile north/east from Exit 2, off Rte. 84, on Mountain Rd. (also called "The Greenville Turnpike"), Greenville. Photographed November 28, 2001. Dates on stones were transcribed to the best of my eyesight. Please use your own records and judgement.
Larger view of Sign and Road The road shown is Mountain Road. If you went left from the sign/driveway, you would be heading toward Otisville and Middletown. If you went right, you would be heading to Rte. 84 (Exit 2 Junction), and Port Jervis. Port Jervis is at Exit 1 off Rte. 84.
"Entrance" I took this as I entered the cemetery from the current entrance. As you can see, it looks like the original entrance was from another direction.
