Basket Cemetery, Town of Fremont, Sullivan County, NY

The Basket Cemetery, also known as the Red School House Cemetery, is located in the town of Fremont, approximately 1 mile below the Delaware County (town of Hancock) border on County Route 134, on the uphill side of the road. It is located across from the intersection with "Basket Road." It is very unkempt, and contains about 50 unmarked fieldstones, some with Veteran's flags. There are a lot of Delaware County people buried here. The cemetery is in need of maintenance. Compiled by Chelsea Haight, transcribed and submitted by Collin Haight.
