Over the Desolate Land

Broken headstones pepper the Van Deusen & Lansing Family Burial Ground (aka Old Johnstown Road Cemetery) on Old Johnstown Road, just north of Old Trail Road, south of Johnstown, Fulton County, New York. There are approximately a dozen or more burials in this small plot, but most of the stones are broken and unreadable. It appear to have been in use during the mid-19th Century.
