"Just got back from a trip to the Mohawk Valley where I made some visits to some family sites. I found the Devendorf Cemetery, which is located near the intersection of Simcer Road and Denice in the town of Florida. Location determined by my GPS is 42.9006ºN, 74.2498ºW. The coordinates are also useful for those who want to locate it at a site like The cemetery was quite overgrown, but the stones of Henry C. Pettingell and Rachel Pettingill Devendorf were readable."
