Note: This burial ground was credited as being in the Town of Dryden by the recordings of Dora Pope Worden in the 1920s. A visit to this burial ground was made April 11th 2002 by Janet M. Nash & Cathy Knauff and found this to be the same as the Marion Family Burying Ground recorded at the earlier date. Both records are added here, the records of Dora Pope Worden and those of the April 2002 recordings. This cemetery has been restored by the property owners and is being maintained. They have done a wonderful job in keeping the burial ground a memorial for those buried here. The Marion family spelled their surname as Merian/Mearian in early times. Changed spelling to Marion later.
