Ensign Cemetery
Town of Stillwater

Ensign Cemetery location map link
(locator symbol on map is )

The Ensign Cemetery is located in the northeast corner of the town of Stillwater, on the west side of route 4, north of the Battlefield, and just south of the Saratoga Town line. There is a path, across the road from Ensign Lane, which leads over the old Champlain Canal and up a steep hill to the cemetery, which will be on your right (north) of the path and under a large Oak Tree, about mile west of route 4. The 36 inscriptions were recorded in 1877 and can be found in Durkee's Epitaphs, Volume 2, pages 505-510. In 2004, only a few stones remain standing, entangled in brush and fallen tree limbs. This cemetery is in desperate need of attention.
