I recently spoke to George Stafford (historian for Town of Masonville) about the ever elusive 'Young Cemetery' on Steam Mill Rd, Town of Deposit, just south of Masonville line, not sure if it is just barely on State land or private property. He gave me directions and after about a half hour of tramping through the forest...I found it! Here are the precise directions in finding it and people buried there. My gr.gr.grandfather's sister and her husband and his parents and inlaws are their, among others.  -- Mark Avery, October 22, 2004   
 
Young Cemetery
 
Location: From Rte. 8 enter on to Steam Mill Rd. Set odometer to zero. Drive 'exactly' 1.9 miles. At this point, there is a break in the stone wall that is on the left (west) side of road. On the north end of the opening is a State Forest sign. If you pass "The Last Dollar" hunting cabin on your right, you've gone too far. At the opening in the fence, previously mentioned, walk due west aprox.750'. Cemetery is there and in pretty good shape. It is marked with a white cross.
