The Quaker Church Cemetery is located on the northeast corner of route 32 and Wilbur Road in the Town of Saratoga. It is about a mile and a quarter south of Quaker Springs Village, and a short distance north of the Quaker Meeting House. The inscriptions were copied by Cornelius Durkee on May 7, 1877 and are found in Durkee's Epitaphs, volume 4, pages 189-201. Additional inscriptions were copied by Grace VanDerwerker in August of 1938 and also by Bertha Caldwell in July of 1940. The gravestones were photographed and inscriptions updated in early 2004. Many graves are unmarked, or marked only by fieldstones without inscription.

Nathaniel Bartlett Sylvester spoke of this cemetery in his 1878 History of Saratoga County as follows: "The ancient Friends' burial-ground, not far from the meeting-house, contains in its long, close rows of graves the buried dust of many an early settler. There, in the solemn silence of calm, trusting faith, the dead have for years been laid to rest, and they sleep as peacefully under the buttercups and the daisies as those who slumber beneath the monumental marble of other more showy, but not more sacred grounds."

An earlier Quaker burial ground is mentioned in a July 23, 1940 Saratogian newspaper article written by Bertha Caldwell: "There was once a very old burial ground near the road just south of the Meeting House. The stones were rough as if taken from a stone wall. The last burials were those of Gilbert Wright and his wife Elizabeth Sarle, 115 years ago" (circa 1825). Although no stones remain at this earlier burial ground, a sign indicates the location.
