Stiles Cemetery View

"This is an old abandoned cemetery which recently has been given the name of "Stiles". Although the grass is mowed the stones are mostly deteriorated and have fallen into pieces on the ground. It might be due to age or it might be vandalism which has left the stones in disrepair. I mention this in case anyone wants to visit, as they would be disappointed. This cemetery was read years ago by George Hildebrandt." (Betsy Voorhees, July 2002)

new 2/2/05  Condition Report and Photos from Al White: "These are of the "Stiles" cemetery, corner of Albany Road and Babcock Hill Road. It is totally uncared for right on the corner of the two roads. It appears that snowplows and whatever short cut across a portion. Totally overgrown with weeds and I guess the name comes from the only monument standing and that is visible. There are a few unreadable stones scattered around if one can find them, but none that I found are readable. I have Rider/Ryder ancestors there as indicated in a much earlier reading."
