Clay Meadows Cemetery, Bolton Landing, Warren, New York, United States


Tree: One Big Family Tree
Notes: History of Cemetery: Clay Meadows was one of the oldest settlements in the town of Bolton. These early settlers, fearing possible attacks following the Revolutionary War, were seeking a protected area above and away from the battlegrounds of Lake George. Due to the over cutting of forest land in the 1700's, most of the area surrounding Lake George was void of trees. While Clay Meadows was less than ideal farm land, its inhabitants did manage a meager existence from farming, fishing, logging, hunting and trapping. In the early part of the 1900's the settlement fell into disuse and the road leading to Clay Meadows was abandoned. During the 1940's, The New York State Civilian Conservation Corps planted 100's of 5 inch tall seedling pine trees. The now giant 80 foot tall pines obscure the view of Northwest Bay and the settlement that once existed here. Time has taken its toll on the existing monuments and over the years vandals desecrated graves and damaged tombstones. In the 1990's, permission was obtained to put a fence around the cemetery. In October of 2003 members of the Bolton Historical Society and seniors from Bolton Central School cleaned up much of the brush and overgrowth.
