This small Quaker cemetery sits at the corner of 9W and Willow Tree Road in Milton, New York. Buried here are several local men who died fighting in the Civil War including the Quaker brothers, Edward Hallock Ketcham and John Townsend Ketcham, whose passion for the abolitionist cause led them to set aside their Quaker pacifism in order to fight for the Union. Their story was written about in the book, The Fighting Quakers: A True Story of the War for Our Union.
