"Mr. Billsborough reported remembering a WILLIAM FARNUM being buried there. He was shot as a group of boys were playing with guns."
"This cemetery needs attention badly in 1951. Many stones are down. It is brushed occasionally by Mr. Billsborough. After leaving the attractive motor court on route 6 on the west-end of Pittsfield, count three farmhouses on the right. At the third (yellow brick type asphalt siding) stop and park. Cross the cow pasture and wade the Little Brokenstraw. Turn left up the bank. The bleached trunk of an old chestnut tree and a huge oak mark the site."
Traveling west on route 6: from the junction of Route 6 and 27 (currently there is a Red Apple Gas Station at the intersection) go west on Route 6 for 1.6 miles; turn into the open area on the left where the sign says "Brokenstraw Gravel." Cross over the Little Brokenstraw on the wooden bridge, stay right and you will see the gatehouse to the Gravel Co. Check in with Pete Kibbey about visiting the cemetery. Keeping the large metal buildings on your right go up the farm road through a stand of pine trees and the cemetery is on the right at the top of the hill opposite a corn field. There are 44 stones, some unreadable, some in good shape. Along with the above names recorded in 1951 are:
BILL, Eunice wife of Chester Bill died 1811
BILL, Chauncy died 1837.
Many of the other 44 stones are readable.
The property is now owned by Priscilla Kibby, RD #2 Pittsfield
