Lanesville Cemetery

N 42.23737
W -74.18851

Located in the Town of Hunter, this cemetery is in good condition and is surrounded, in part by a low stone wall. There are numerous unmarked field stones. The cemetery is situated off Beecher Road behind an abandoned, red boarding house. To reach the boarding house one must follow a short stone driveway at the northern end of Beecher Road.

Can you help me to merge two memorials #78213527 and #132471686? These two memorials is the same grave and person. Memorial #132471686 has the correct birth- and deathdates.

Best regards
Ulrika

1. Please delete the cemetery called Schodack Cemetery. The correct name of the cemetery is already listed here.

2. Please change the name of this cemetery so it reads as "Saint John's Cemetery."

3. Please change the name of this cemetery so it reads as "Saint John's Cemetery."

4. Please change the name of this cemetery so it reads as "Saint Mary's Cemetery."

5. Please change the name of this cemetery so it reads "Saint Marys' In the Woods Cemetery."

Thanks so much!

1. Please mark the Van Alen Cemetery as Defunct. According to an email from the town historian, as well as the burial listings from the Rensselaer County Genweb site, all of the bodies as well as gravestones were moved to the Blooming Grove Cemetery.

The email from the historian says "Yes, the Van Alen Cemetery on Washington Avenue by the house is defunct. Some time ago, the stones were moved to Bloomingrove. I actually had the historian's office from the House of Representatives contact me a few years ago to ask the same question (John E.Van Alen was our first congressman)."

2. In the description for the Van Alen Cemetery please add "According to the town historian, the Van Alen Cemetery which was once located on Washington Avenue by a house, was moved many years ago. All the stones are now located in the Blooming Grove Cemetery in North Greenbush."

3. Also, someone has already created a duplicate memorial for this famous person in the Blooming Grove Cemetery. I don't know if you can merge them.
Original # 17913848
Duplicate # 111628620

Thanks so much!
