Presbyterian

In 1842 the First Presbyterian Church of Matteawan obtained a 999 year lease to property on what is now Phillips Avenue and next to St. Anna’s Cemetery for their cemetery.  In 1863, Charles Wolcott conveyed land which included the Presbyterian cemetery to St. Luke’s Church, subject to the lease.

At one time, a row of Elms lined the boundary between St. Anna’s and the Presbyterian sections of the cemetery.
