Laws Family Cemetery

The LAWS family cemetery was located somewhere near Whiskey Road in Ridge. Seven stones were removed and placed in the Manorville, LI NY Cemetery by Miss LILLIAN ETTA RAYNOR. There was probably other burials but I am told no other stones. I do not know the date but she lived from 1869 to 1960. She was a descendant of the LAWS family and was an active genealogist. I copied the stones in September 1972. Abbreviations: WSS - White Sandstone; SS - Sandstone; f.s. - Foot stone
