First was Ferry road. From the name I assumed it was near the Black river but old newspaper articles told me it was on a abandoned town road, near the edge of the town of Lowville, between No 3 road and NYS 12. I was able to find it on the back side of a cornfield. The used to be Feare, probably after an old family, but had morphed into Ferry The road still existed but was overgrown with grass and burdock.

It was a beautiful day and location , with farmland all around me, Tug Hill and it's windmills looming to the West and the Adirondacks to the East. Over head were Lake Effect clouds in long wide rows separated by equal clear spaces. The cemetery was a nice patch of trees that had been mowed and the fallen branches stacked by the edge. Only one stone was still standing but it was the vet, Ichabod Perry, that I had come for. It's a large cemetery and must have had hundreds of stones. Perhaps some are under the leaves.
