NOTE: This cemetery is now called Little Zion Graveyard and is located behind the Saddle River Cultural Center on West Saddle River Road, very near to the current day Saddle River Reformed Dutch Church. This cemetery was transcribed in 1936. It is a good thing, because when I visited it in 1996, many of the stones were illegible.
