Bryan Cemetery
also known as Scidmore Cemetery



The Bryan or Scidmore Cemetery is located on the north side of Burgoyne Road, about 1/2 mile west of Bryants Bridge, in the Town of Saratoga, Saratoga County, New York State. The cemetery is enclosed with a stone fence in good repair. There are many graves marked with native field stones, some with hand carved inscriptions. Most graves, including those marked with field stones, have both headstones and footstones. The cemetery dates from the late 1700's with the earliest marked gravestone inscribed 1794. The most recent burial would appear to be 1946, although there is still some space available on the east side of the cemetery. Cornelius Emerson Durkee copied the inscriptions in 1877 and his list can be found as the Bryan Cemetery on page 113 of Volume 4 of Durkee's Epitaphs. This cemetery has also been know as the Scidmore Burying Ground. The cemetery was recopied in 1997, in approximate rows from west to east, with the graves numbered from south to north.
