Leavens Cemetery

also known as
Gifford Cemetery
in Town of Lake Luzerne

The Leavens or Gifford Cemetery is located on the east side of East River Drive about 3.3 miles south of the intersection of East River Drive and N.Y.S. Route 9N.

This spread sheet was created using a stone reading by Mary St. John in 1956, another found in the Warren County Historian's Office with no date or author, and another by Robert & Barbara Green in June of 2002. Also included is some data from the vital records of the towns of Luzerne and Corinth, and old newspaper obits. Parents names and spouses maiden names were also obtained from Ancestry.com and the Church of Latter-Day Saints when data could be verified. Some of the Orton family information came from John Austin. The cemetery contains many graves marked with field stones or not marked at all, these likely outnumber the marked graves. In the process of reading these stones in June each was rubbed with talcum powder to help read faint lettering. This is an expandable spread sheet so if anyone can supply additional information it can be added. We can be contacted at rgbkg@capital.net.
