Guernsey Hollow cemetery is officially in Catt. co. but its bordering the town of Carroll, which is , basically, Frewsburg. It is a weird place, and , unfortuneately , has often been the area party spot for kids, and some very disconcerting pagan rituals also. There are some very old stones there, as there once was a rather substantial settlement in the area many years ago. Many of the stones bear similar d-o-d and a couple of old timers told me they thought it was an epidemic that took out most of the settlers in the immediate area; but they couldn't agree on which epidemic it was. Many of the names are Scottish or Irish in origin.
