William K. Sanford Town Library, Town of Colonie Sub-collections:
Colonie New York Cemetery Collection
This digital collection is a joint project of the William K. Sanford Town Library and the Town of Colonie Historian’s Office. The collection itself is composed of documents and photographs created by the late R. Arthur Johnson throughout the 1970s. Johnson was a retired planning engineer for the New York Telephone Co. and a member of the Colonie Historical Society. The smaller Colonie-area cemeteries are shown here. These cemeteries are usually centered around one or a small group of families on land originally owned by them. The general timeframe of the burials in these cemeteries ranges from the late 1700s until the early 1900s. Some of the earlier graves were for individuals involved in or touched by the Revolutionary War.
