Pruyn & Faulkner Cemetery
aka VanHorn Cemetery
Town of Glen
Montgomery County, NY
Pruyn-Faulkner Cemetery photos were contributed by Jack Williams back in 1997. "My images clearly show the inscription on the gate "PRUYN & FAULKNER, 1863". I do not think it is the same as the "Faulkner Graveyard at Mill Point." The only stone we found of direct interest to us was that of Elizabeth Shelp. I know of no reading of it." [NOTE: after twenty years, we don't know if Jack's email address is still valid, and have no other for him.]
In February 20, 2000 we found and added a reading. The cemetery list with Elizabeth Shelp VanHorne's name was published in Vol. 73 of the compiled NYS D.A.R. records, named "Van Horne Graveyard". It's location was given as "Town of Amsterdam, located near Mill Point." This cemetery was copied by Helen Lyons Wikoff (Mrs. H. E.), who was chairman of the genealogical records committee for the Ft. Washington Chapter of the NYDAR. There were several transcription errors. Corrections from Van Horne researchers would be very much appreciated. This is a different cemetery than the small Faulkner Cemetery at Mill Point.
