1. Colden Family Cemetery (Wikipedia). The Colden Family Cemetery was established in the 1780s by the descendants of area resident Cadwallader Colden, one of the last colonial governors of New York. Colden himself is buried another private cemetery in the Queens community of Flushing where he died. Many of his progeny are here, along with some of the family's slaves and members of other families. The earliest grave is that of his last wife Elizabeth, who died in 1782. The most recent grave is that of Anna Colden Harris, who died in 1937. (Submitted on July 4, 2019, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.) 

2. Colden Family Cemetery. This is the cemetery for the Cadwallader Colden family and his descendants. He was a prominent leader in the area in the late 1700s. It is no longer managed by the family, but is now owned and maintained by the town of Montgomery. (Submitted on July 4, 2019, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
