Date Read: 1989
Typed By: Janet Loftus
Location: Located on 17-C at Chemung, West of the Race Track on the North Side of the Road
Other comments: The list that I received was labeled Frost - Owen Farm. Since a cemetery by that name was not on my list, and Drake is a name in the cemetery, I am making the assumption that this is also called the Drake Cemetery. If anyone has information to the contrary, please inform me - Joyce M. Tice

This is directly on Route 17C across from the convenience store. While it is strategically located it is difficult to find. When I asked at the convenience store for the location of any old cemeteries in the area a couple of years ago, even they did not tell me about the one across the street. And when a friend gave me directions and said, "You can't miss it." I responded that I obviously had been missing it for months even when I was looking for it. Once you've seen it, it is obvious, but is easily overlooked. It is on the east side of the road and is mowed. JMT
