Although there are no grave stones evident with the Shippee name, this is how the cemetary is locally known. There are several larger stone and one monolith. There are also remnants of other stones, but a search of the surrounding area revealed none. As seen below, there are also numerous smaller stone that have only two initials, many with "S" for the last name. Whether this stands for Shippee or another name that is evident, Smellegar, is not known. More research will be done and any information is appreciated. Please see the contacts page.

In the winter months there is little weed growth. The existing stones are visible. Just beyond the tree branch in the front right is a stone and two bases. The stone on the ground can be seen below. Another stone, probably off one of the bases, stands against the tree. Weather has taken its toll and the raised inscription is only minimally visible.
The above stone gives some idea as to the age of the cemetary. In relief,the stone is imprinted with "Anna Van Wagoner, wife of John Smellegar, Born Dec. 5, 1785, Died Jan. 9, 1873."
The largest stone is seen below.
There are a number of small stones which are not much more then stone blocks on which are carved only initials (left photo). On the right is what appears to be the most recent stone for Oliver King.
More information would be appreciated regarding all those buried here and how they were related to one-another.
