Visit Cemeteries for a listing of all know cemeteries in the Hilltowns. An inventory of Westerlo Cemeteries, compiled by the late Larry Jackson, lists 66 cemeteries and small family burial grounds. Many of the burial grounds no longer exist, having been moved to the Indian Fields Cemetery in Alcove to make way for the construction of the Basic Reservioir.

The Westerlo Public Library has binders of nearly complete cemetery records transcribed from existing tombstones by the late Thurman Bishop, Jr., former Town Historian (earlier cemetery records were lost in a fire).

Cemetery notes and/or description:
  • Onderdonk Cemetery, also known as Community Cemetery is located on Dormansville/Clarksville Road County Route 312, as you are heading for Clarksville on right 200' to right directly across from intersection with Tan Hollow Road (or 1.1 miles from Dormansville. Cemetery is on private property and cannot be seen from the road because of overgrown brush. Many headstones are overturned or broken.
