Kirkland Cemeteries – Barker Road

Barker Road CemetaryContinuing our brief series on Kirkland cemeteries, we travel south on Lumbard Road and turn east on Barker Road. At about 100 yards from Lumbard on the south side of the road is the Barker Road Cemetery. Officially Aabandoned@ the cemetery is taken care of by the Kirkland Highway Department in a very nice way. The grass is kept mowed, and the headstones trimmed.

Who’s buried there? Many Walkers, Barkers, Cones, Pages, Pecks, Parkers, Shermans, Whites, and Whitneys. The Walker monument stands over 15 feet high and has inscriptions on all four sides and is visible from the road. The first burial was in 1805, and the last was in 1900. A few veterans are interred there also.
