This cemetery is sometimes called as Rural or Riverside. On the edge of the Village of Ellisburgh, Jefferson County, NY, the road that it is located on has two names - Main St heading west turns into South Landing Rd and depending on what map you are looking at you may see either name. It is a surprisingly large cemetery for such a small town.
At Find A Grave you will find this cemetery listed as Rural Cemetery. Thus far only 402 memorials have been created. I take photos every time I visit and add memorials based on them and occasionally I add information from obituaries that I stumble across.
Listed as Ellisburg Cemetery at NNY Genealogy, their listing includes just over 2700 records and is searchable.
For obituaries try Old Fulton Post Cards. NNY Genealogy also has death index compiled from various sources.
