John Jay is buried on private property that is surrounded by a nature center. There is a visitors center and we got directions from the woman working there. We hiked back about 200 yards and found the cemetery. It is surrounded by a six foot high barbed wire fence. The woman at the visitors center said the family closed it to the public about three years ago.
