The Van Zandt cemetery is located near Parks Hill Road. Turn up Parks Hill Road in Fergusonville and take it until it turns to go to Schenevus. Take a left, pass two trailers, and the burying ground is quite far back in the field. There is an old foundation visible there. I am not entirely sure where this cemetery is.

Abandoned cemetery in town of Davenport. In the Prosser Hollow- Rathbun Road area. 
Transcribed in about 1960. This is all the data the sheet I have gives, and it is unclear 
to me where the actual cemetery is.
Update: Auagust 7, 2000 from Bill Lamphere Sperry Hollow is in the Town of Maryland, Otsego County, west of corner of Sperry Hollow road and Norton road. After turning onto the road, you go to the first house on the left. Pull in driveway, facing barn. To the left is a path approximately 6 ft. wide that is mowed by the Town. Follow the path back into a small wooded area. The stone of Levi A. Lamphere is very legible. The compilation below lists Levi A. as a Sperry. I was recently at the small grave yard the first week of June 2000. His stone clearly reads Levi A. Lamphere.
